The gravity dual of the non-perturbativeN = 2 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory

  • Satchidananda Naik


The anomalous Ward identity is derived forN = 2 SUSY Yang-Mills theories, which is resulted out of wrapping ofD 5 branes on supersymmetric two cycles. Prom the ward identity one obtains the Witten-Dijkgraaf-Verlinde-Verlinde equation and hence can solve for the pre-potential. This way one avoids the problem of enhancon which maligns the non-perturbative behaviour of the Yang-Mills theory resulted out of wrapped branes.
