Abstract

We construct supersymmetric Lifshitz field theories with four real supercharges in a general number of space dimensions. The theories consist of complex bosons and fermions and exhibit a holomorphic structure and non-renormalization properties of the superpotential. We study the theories in a diverse number of space dimensions and for various choices of marginal interactions. We show that there are lines of quantum critical points with an exact Lifshitz scale invariance and a dynamical critical exponent that depends on the coupling constants.
