Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Bootstrap equations for N=4 SYM with defects
17 March 2017 13:00 in CM221
We study the constraints of superconformal symmetry on 4d N=4 theories in the presence of a defect from the point of view of the bootstrap. The superconformal algebra implies that the bootstrap equations have an exact truncation which is tractable analytically. The truncation is a set of polynomial equations that imply non-perturbative constraints on the CFT data.
