Abstract

We investigate a possibility of scale invariant but nonconformal supersymmetric field theories from a perturbative approach. The explicit existence of monotonically decreasing a-function that generates beta-functions as a gradient flow provides a strong obstruction for such a possibility at two-loop order. We comment on the "discovery" of scale invariant but nonconformal renormalization group trajectories via a "change of scheme" in (4-ϵ) dimension proposed in literatures.
