Tests for C-theorems in 4 D

  title={Tests for C-theorems in 4 D},
  author={Fiorenzo Bastianelli},
A proof for a non-perturbative C-theorem in four dimensions, capturing the irre-versibility of the renormalization group flow in the space of unitary quantum field theories, has not been accomplished, yet. We test the conjectured C-theorems using the exact results recently obtained in N = 1 supersymmetric gauge theories. We find that the flow towards the infrared region is consistent with the main proposals for a C-theorem. Zamolodchikov's C-theorem [1] is a standard tool in the studies of two… CONTINUE READING
