Abstract

We consider supersymmetric SU(N) and O(N) gauge theories without matter and propose a method for calculating the gluino condensate 〈Trλλ〉 in such theories. A general expression is obtained, 〈Trλλ〉G = ΛG3exp( 2πik T(G)) ≠ O, where ΛG] is the scale parameter, G = SU(N) or O(N), k is an integer number, T(G) is one half of the Dynkin index. For the unitary groups 〈Trλλ〉 has N different values while for the orthogonal groups (N - 2) values.
