comment Does 4D N = 3 supersymmetry exist?
Has anybody read Chap. 12 of ["Harmonic Superspace" ebooks.cambridge.org/ebook.jsf?bid=CBO9780511535109], titled "N=3 super Yang-Mills theory"? I've never understood whether what they describe is N=3 or N=4

comment Why are some solitons formed from bosonic fields fermionic?
Additional comment is that even in 4d, the WZW term can make a soliton constructed from scalar fields alone fermionic; the skyrmion becoming a baryon when the number of color is odd is the typical example. In a sense the Lagrangian in this case has a term which produces long-range phase.
