Improved matrix-model calculation of the N = 2 prepotential
We present a matrix-model expression for the sum of instanton contributions to the prepotential of an N = 2 supersymmetric U (N) gauge theory, with matter in various representations. This expression is derived by combining the renormalization-group approach to the gauge theory prepotential with matrix-model methods. This result can be evaluated order-by-order in matrix-model perturbation theory to obtain the instanton corrections to the prepotential. We also show, using this expression, that the one-instanton prepotential assumes a universal form. © SISSA/ISAS 2004.
