A note on the Coulomb branch of susy Yang-Mills

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We compute the force between oppositely charged W bosons in the large N limit of Yang-Mills with 16 supercharges broken to SU(N)×U(1) by a finite Higgs vev. We clarify some issues regarding Wilson line computations and show that there is a regime in which the force between W bosons is independent of separation distance.
