Title: Emergent supersymmetry in the marginal deformations of $$\mathcal{N}=4$$ SYM

Abstract

Here, we study the one loop renormalization group flow of the marginal deformations of $$\mathcal{N}=4$$ SYM theory using the a-function. We found that in the planar limit some non-supersymmetric deformations flow to the supersymmetric infrared fixed points described by the Leigh-Strassler theory. This means supersymmetry emerges as a result of renormalization group flow.
