Abstract [en]

Using exact results obtained from localization on S 4, we explore the large N limit of N = 2 super Yang-Mills theories with massive matter multiplets. We focus on three cases: N = 2* theory, describing a massive hypermultiplet in the adjoint representation, SU(N) super-Yang-Mills with 2 N massive hypermultiplets in the fundamental, and super QCD with massive quarks. When the radius of the four-sphere is sent to infinity the theories at hand are described by solvable matrix models, which exhibit a number of interesting phenomena including quantum phase transitions at finite 't Hooft coupling.
