Supersymmetric gauge theories and their dualities
In this course, I will review supersymmetric gauge theories in 4 and 3 spacetime dimensions. I will discuss (Seiberg-like) dualities among these gauge theories, focusing on the example of supersymmetric QCD specific to 4 and 3 dimensions. Towards the end of the course, I will touch upon the non-trivial problem of reducing 4D dualities to 3D dualities, as well as brane-realizations of the gauge theories in question.
