Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 176)

Abstract

The status of the auxiliary field program for supersymmetric field theories is reviewed, with emphasis on the implications for improved ultraviolet behaviour, and conversely on the implications of ultraviolet behaviour for auxiliary fields.
