Yang-Mills theories and quadratic forms
Journal article, 2015

Abstract: We show that the Hamiltonian of (N=1, d = 10) super Yang-Mills can be expressed as a quadratic form in a very similar manner to that of the (N=4, d = 4) theory. We find a similar quadratic form structure for pure Yang-Mills theory but this feature, in the non-supersymmetric case, seems to be unique to four dimensions. We discuss some consequences of this feature. © 2015, The Author(s).
