Supermultiplets in N = 1 SU(2) supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory


  • Mr. Henning GERBER

Primary authors



We study N = 1 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory (SYM) on the lattice. Like QCD, SYM is confining and contains strongly bound states. Glueballs, gluino-glues, mesons and their corresponding excited states should form chiral supermultiplets if SUSY is not broken at the quantum level. We compute masses for the bound states of the two lightest supermultiplets by applying a variational method combined with different smearing techniques. We show that recent lattice simulations provide evidences for the expected degeneracy not only in the lowest, but also in the first excited supermultiplet.
