    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    We study the spectrum of the lowest-spin bound states of the softly broken N=1 SUSY Yang-Mills theory in a certain approximation. Two dual formulations of the effective action for the model are given. The spurion method is used for the soft SUSY breaking. Masses of the bound states are calculated approximately and mixing patterns between the states with different parity and spin-orbital quantum numbers are discussed. Mass splittings of pure gluonic states are consistent with predictions of conventional Yang-Mills theory. The results can be tested or used in lattice simulations of the SUSY Yang-Mills model.
