Introduction to Superconformal field theory


  • Mario Martone ⋅ US Department of Physics, University of Texas at Austin


In my talk I will explain the motivations behind the study of quantum field theories in 4 dimensions which have both Supersymmetry and conformal invariance and will give a flavor of the wonderful mathematics involved in these studies. In last part of the talk, I will also summarize the exciting recent developments including my own work on the subject.
