Period integrals, quantum numbers, and confinement in SUSY QCD

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We compute the period integrals on degenerate Seiberg-Witten curves for supersymmetric QCD explicitly and also show how these periods determine the changes in the quantum numbers of the states when passing from the weak- to strong-coupling domains in the mass moduli space of the theory. We discuss the confinement of monopoles at a strong coupling and demonstrate that the ambiguities in choosing the path in the moduli space do not affect the physical conclusions on confinement of monopoles in the phase with condensed light dyons.
