In theoretical physics, Seiberg–Witten theory is a theory that determines an exact low-energy effective action (for massless degrees of freedom) of a N=2 supersymmetric gauge theory—namely the metric of the moduli space of vacua.

Seiberg-Witten theory and its physical interpretation

I have been working on Seiberg-Witten theory (well, I am now familiar with its computation), but i do not now the physical concept of this theory. For example, i now from the duality of ...

Recommendation of papers, or reading materials on N=2, N=4 supersymmetry

I am familiar with N=1 susy in the context of Wess and Bagger. For further progress, i want to study N=2, N=4 supersymmetry, to study seiberg-like duality. (I am not familiar with the notation ...

Seiberg-Witten theory and Superconductivity

There seems to have some (deep) relation between Seiberg-Witten theory and superconductivity. e.g. this Witten paper. Q: Could someone introduce the relations between the twos both physically in ...
