Infinite chiral symmetry in four dimensions.

Beem, Christopher and Lemos, Madalena and Liendo, Pedro and Peelaers, Wolfger and Rastelli, Leonardo and van Rees, Balt C. (2015) 'Infinite chiral symmetry in four dimensions.', Communications in mathematical physics., 336 (3). pp. 1359-1433.


We describe a new correspondence between four-dimensional conformal field theories with extended supersymmetry and two-dimensional chiral algebras. The meromorphic correlators of the chiral algebra compute correlators in a protected sector of the four-dimensional theory. Infinite chiral symmetry has far-reaching consequences for the spectral data, correlation functions, and central charges of any four-dimensional theory with N=2N=2 superconformal symmetry.
