Demonstration of Confinement and Chiral Symmetry Breaking in SO(Nc) Gauge Theories


We demonstrate that SO(N_{c}) gauge theories with matter fields in the vector representation confine due to monopole condensation and break the SU(N_{F}) chiral symmetry to SO(N_{F}) via the quark bilinear. Our results are obtained by perturbing the N=1 supersymmetric theory with anomaly-mediated supersymmetry breaking.
