Euclidean supersymmetrization of instantons and selfdual monopoles
Abstract
We show that N=1, D=4 euclidean supersymmetry leads to the complexification of gauge potentials, and that to have a supersymmetric euclidean D=4 theory which allows for the selfduality of real gauge potentials, the supersymmetry has to be extended to even N, i.e. at least N=2. We also discuss the supersymmetrizatin of Manton's procedure of using the dimensional reduction D=4>D=3 to derive selfdual monopoles from instantons.
