Applications of Superconformal Representation Theory Cordova, Clay


Local operators in supersymmetric conformal field theory are in representations of the super- conformal group. In this talk, I will briefly review this representation theory and apply it to shed light on some basic questions such as: Are there (N,0) superconformal field theories? Do the (2,0) theories have continuous parameters or global symmetries? Why is the (2,0) theory on a circle described by 5d Super-Yang-Mills? How can we understand the RG flow of the (2,0) theory on its moduli space?
