In this thesis we explore the constraints posed by the a-theorem to the renormalization group flows between fixed points in supersymmetric gauge theories. We reproduce some known results. We argue that the analogies between the supersymmetric gauge theory and the massless Veneziano limit of large-N QCD (and in particular the recently proposed exact beta function) point to the possibility of the extension of similar constraints to QCD.
