What is the relation between the rep the Higgs field transforms under, the types of couplings in the theory and Higgs/Coulomb branches?
When reading about Higgs and Coulomb 'phases' I came across two separate definitions: The first tells us that the Higgs/Coulomb phases are determined by the rep that the Higgs field transforms ...
This is in reference to the argument given towards the end of page $61$ of this review paper. There for the path-integral argument to work the author clearly needed some argument to be able to ignore ...
Apart from other reasons, recently my interest in this area got piqued when I heard an awesome lecture by Seiberg on the idea of meta-stable-supersymmetry-breaking. I am looking for references on ...
