Lattice N=1 super-Yang-Mills formulated using Ginsparg-Wilson fermions provides a rigorous nonperturbative definition of the continuum theory that requires no fine-tuning as the lattice spacing is reduced to zero. Domain wall fermions are one explicit scheme for achieving this and using them we have performed large-scale Monte Carlo simulations of the theory for gauge group SU(2). We have measured the gaugino condensate, static potential, Creutz ratios, and residual mass for several values of the domain wall separation Ls, four-dimensional lattice volume, and two values of the bare gauge coupling. With this data we are able to extrapolate the gaugino condensate to the chiral limit, to express it in physical units, and to establish important benchmarks for future studies of super-Yang-Mills on the lattice.
