Young supertableaux and the large N = 4 superconformal algebra.

Fearn, S. (2019) 'Young supertableaux and the large N = 4 superconformal algebra.', Physica scripta., 94 (12). p. 125222.


In this paper we consider representations of the ‘Large’ N = 4 superconformal algebra A in the Ramond sector as infinite-dimensional graded modules of its zero mode subalgebra, which we show to be the finite superalgebra su(2j2). We describe how representations of su(2j2) may be classified using Young supertableaux, and use the decomposition of A as an su(2j2) module to discuss the states which contribute to a supersymmetric index suitable for A previously proposed in the literature. 1
