By Yuji Tachikawa (auth.)

Understanding the dynamics of gauge theories is important, given the truth that all recognized interactions are in accordance with the main of neighborhood gauge symmetry. past the perturbative regime, in spite of the fact that, this can be a notoriously tricky challenge. Requiring invariance below supersymmetry seems to be an appropriate software for studying supersymmetric gauge theories over a bigger sector of the gap of parameters. Supersymmetric quantum box theories in 4 dimensions with prolonged N=2 supersymmetry are extra limited and feature consequently been a fertile box of study in theoretical physics for relatively your time. furthermore, there are far-reaching mathematical ramifications that experience ended in a winning discussion with differential and algebraic geometry.

These lecture notes objective to introduce scholars of contemporary theoretical physics to the interesting advancements within the realizing of N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories in a coherent style. beginning with a gradual creation to electric-magnetic duality, the writer publications readers throughout the key milestones within the box, which come with the paintings of Seiberg and Witten, Nekrasov, Gaiotto etc. As a sophisticated graduate point textual content, it assumes that readers have a operating wisdom of supersymmetry together with the formalism of superfields, in addition to of quantum box concept thoughts resembling regularization, renormalization and anomalies.

After his commencement from the college of Tokyo, Yuji Tachikawa labored on the Institute for complex research, Princeton and the Kavli Institute for Physics and arithmetic of the Universe. shortly on the division of Physics, college of Tokyo, Tachikawa is the writer of numerous vital papers in supersymmetric quantum box theories and string theory.
