Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Long global supermultiplet bootstrap in two dimensions
18 November 2016 13:00 in CM221
The superconformal bootstrap program has been very successful, but so far the focus has been on four-point functions of half-BPS operators. For many practical purposes the bootstrap of non half-BPS operators is necessary, but the corresponding superblocks remain in most cases unknown. We take a preliminary step towards this by computing the two-dimensional N=2 global superconformal blocks for generic long multiplets, and outline how the future computation for theories with four supercharges in higher dimensions would proceed. Finally we comment on the consequences of these blocks for four-dimensional N=3 superconformal theories.
