SUSY gauge theories and whitham integrable systems from compactification and SUSY breaking

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We review the Seiberg-Witten construction of low-energy effective actions and BPS spectra in SUSY gauge theories and its formulation in terms of integrable systems. It is also demonstrated how this formulation naturally appears from the compactified version of the theory with partially broken supersymmetry so that the integrable structures arise from the relation between bare and quantum variables and superpotentials of SUSY gauge theories. The Whitham integrable systems, literally corresponding to the uncompactified theory, are then restored by averaging over fast variables in the decompactification limit.
