The properties of gauge-invariant composite operators and their correlation functions in N = 4 SYM are discussed in the analytic superspace formalism. A complete classification of the different types of operators in the theory is given. Operators can be either protected or unprotected according to whether they do not or do have anomalous dimensions, and the analytic superspace formalism allows one to identify which type a given operator is in a straightforward manner. A simple discussion is… Expand
Operator mixing and three-point functions in N = 4 SYM
We study the three-point functions between two BPS and one non-BPS local gauge invariant operators in = 4 Super Yang-Mills theory. We show in explicit 1-loop examples that the single trace operatorExpand
