Four-dimensional N=2 super Yang-Mills theory is obtained by introducing a one parameter
mass deformation to the hypermultiplet of four-dimensional N=4 Yang-Mills.
Four-dimensional N=2
Yang-Mills is a non-conformal gauge theory and its gravitational
dual has been constructed by Pilch and Warner. The theory exhibits many interesting
properties at finite temperature. We formulate N=2* super Yang-Mills on a Euclidean
spacetime lattice using the method of topological twisting. The lattice formulation is
local, gauge invariant, doubler free and preserves one supersymmetry charge at finite
lattice spacing. Such a construction can be used for finite temperature nonperturbative
explorations of the theory and test the gauge-gravity duality conjecture in a
non-conformal theory.
