# More ${\mathcal N}$=4 superconformal bootstrap

@article{Beem2016MoreN, title={More \$\{\mathcal N\}\$=4 superconformal bootstrap}, author={Christopher Beem and Leonardo Rastelli and Balt C. van Rees}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2016}, pages={046014} }

In this long overdue second installment, we continue to develop the conformal bootstrap program for ${\mathcal N}=4$ superconformal field theories in four dimensions via an analysis of the correlation function of four stress-tensor supermultiplets. We review analytic results for this correlator and make contact with the SCFT/chiral algebra correspondence of arXiv:1312.5344. We demonstrate that the constraints of unitarity and crossing symmetry require the central charge $c$ to be greater than…
