Rigid Supersymmetry in Curved Superspace, Unified formalism and applications


Abstract:


The study of supersymmetric field theories on curved manifolds has recently provided many interesting exact results about the dynamics of strongly coupled supersymmetric field theories. I will present a unified framework to describe rigid supersymmetry in curved space and apply it to define some exactly computable observables for supersymmetric theories in three and four dimensions and to study their properties. As a product of the general formalism, I will also present a classification of supersymmetric Euclidean four manifolds.
