Higher derivative supersymmetric theories and their BPS states


Higher derivative terms in supersymmetric theories are in general suffer from the auxiliary field problem that they propagate and cannot be eliminated. We classify BPS states in N=1 supersymmetric theories with higher derivative terms free from the auxiliary field problem. We also discuss a supersymmetric extension of the Skyrme model.
