Review of AdS/CFT integrability, chapter VI.1: Superconformal symmetry. (English) Zbl 1268.81126
Summary: Aspects of the \(D = 4\), \({\mathcal N=4}\) superconformal symmetry relevant to the AdS/CFT duality and integrability are reviewed. These include the Lie superalgebra \(\mathfrak{psu}(2,2|4)\), its representations, conformal transformations and correlation functions in \({\mathcal N=4}\) super Yang-Mills theory as well as an illustration of the \(\text{AdS}_5\times S^5\) superspace on which the dual string theory is formulated.
