We discuss the structure of the chiral anomaly in supersymmetric gauge theories in both the manifestly SUSY covariant approach and the Wess-Zumino gauge. In four dimensions we derive the SUSY anomaly in the W-Z gauge from the SUSY invariant expression of the chiral anomaly. We give a prescription for the computation of the SUSY anomaly in higher dimensions and present the resulting expression in six dimensions.

Abstract

We discuss the structure of the chiral anomaly in supersymmetric gauge theories in both the manifestly SUSY covariant approach and the Wess-Zumino gauge. In four dimensions we derive the SUSY anomaly in the W-Z gauge from the SUSY invariant expression of the chiral anomaly. We give a prescription for the computation of the SUSY anomaly in higher dimensions and present the resulting expression in six dimensions.
