Bootstrapping N=2 SCFTs

Regular Seminar Madalena Lemos (DESY Hamburg)

14:00 QMW
room G.O. Jones 610

In this talk we will discuss the bootstrap program applied to four-dimensional N=2 superconformal field theories, with focus on analytical results. After a brief review of the protected subsector captured by a two-dimensional chiral algebra, we will show how analytic bounds on anomaly coefficients are obtained and constrain the space of allowed SCFTs. Finally we will comment the implications for the numerical bootstrap program.
