On AffleckDineSeiberg superpotential and magnetic monopoles in supersymmetric QCD
Abstract
Certain exact results in supersymmetric gauge theories are generated by nonperturbative effects different from instantons. In supersymmetric QCD with N colours and N_{F} fundamental flavours we examine the AffleckDineSeiberg (ADS) superpotential using controlled semiclassical analysis. We show how for N_{F}< N  1 the ADS superpotential arises from monopole contributions to the path integral of the supersymmetric gauge theory compactified on Bbb R^{3} × S^{1}. These are the monopole effects leading to gaugino condensation and confinement of the lowenergy SU(NN_{F}) supersymmetric gauge theory.
