Title: Exact Results in SUSY

Brian Wecht

In this series of 4-5 two-hour lectures, I will describe some of the powerful exact results that one can achieve in supersymmetric theories. The topics will be as follows:

Lecture 1: Non-Renormalization Theorems

Lecture 2: Classical and Quantum Moduli Spaces

Lecture 3: Superconformal Field Theories and Seiberg Duality

Lecture 4: Central Charges, a-maximization, and the a-theorem

Lecture 5 (if it happens): Brane Tilings and Dimers
