Chiral Rings, Superpotentials and the Vacuum Structure of N = 1 Supersymmetric Gauge Theories
Pages: 269 – 305
We use the Konishi anomaly equations to construct the exact effective superpotential of the glueball superfields in various N = 1 supersymmetric gauge theories. We use the superpotentials to study in detail the structure of the spaces of vacua of these theories. We consider chiral and non-chiral 1SU(N) models, the exceptional gauge group G2 and models that break supersymmetry dynamically.
