    Abstract:
    Higher derivative terms in the effective action of certain Yang-Mills theories can be severely constrained by supersymmetry. We show that requiring sixteen supersymmetries in quantum mechanical gauge theory determines the v6 term in the effective action. Even the numerical coefficient of the v6 term is fixed in terms of lower derivative terms in the effective action.
