Abstract

We derive an exact unified formula for all condensates (quark and monopole) in the hybrid r vacua in N=2 supersymmetric QCD slightly deformed by a μA2 term. The gauge group is assumed to be U(N) and the number of the quark flavors Nf subject to the condition N<Nf<2N. In the r vacua, r quarks and N-r-1 monopoles from nonoverlapping subgroups of U(N) develop vacuum expectation values (r<N). We then briefly review possible dynamical regimes (confinement, screening, and "instead of confinement") in the hybrid r vacua in μ-deformed N=2 supersymmetric QCD (the small-μ limit).
