Title: From N=1 to N=2 Supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on the lattice
Abstract: Confinement and chiral symmetry breaking are fundamental properties of QCD and its supersymmetric extensions. In contrast to QCD, the extended symmetries of SUSY allow a deeper analytical understanding of strong interactions that can be tested by means of lattice Monte Carlo simulations. During the talk, the latest lattice results for the N=1 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory will be presented. The model is the simplest supersymmetric extension of a Yang-Mills theory, describing the strong interactions of gluons and gluinos. In the continuum limit, the bound states are organized in supermultiplets, supporting the conjecture that SUSY is restored in the infrared regime even with the lattice regularization. Finally, the prospects for lattice investigations of the N=2 SYM will be discussed.
