Phases of nonsupersymmetric gauge theories: The SO(Nc) case study


We investigate the IR phases of nonsupersymmetric (non-SUSY) SO(Nc) gauge theories with NF fermions in the vector representation obtained by perturbing the SUSY theory with anomaly mediated SUSY breaking (AMSB). We find that of the wide variety of phases appearing in the SUSY theory only two survive: for NF≤32(Nc-2) the theory confines, breaking the SU(NF) global symmetry to SO(NF), while for 32(Nc-2)
