The Effective Potential of the N = 0 ∗ Yang-Mills Theory

By Assaf Patir and Dori Reichmann


Abstract: We study the N = 4 SYM theory with SU(N) gauge group in the large N limit, deformed by giving equal mass to the four adjoint fermions. With this modification, a potential is dynamically generated for the six scalars in the theory, φ i. We show that the resulting theory is stable (perturbatively in the ’t Hooft coupling), and that there are some indications that 〈φ 〉 = 0 is the vacuum of the theory. Using the AdS/CFT correspondence, we compare the results to the corresponding supergravity computation, i.e. brane probing a deformed AdS5 × S 5 background, and we find qualitative agreement
