Supersymmetric Wilson loops on S^2: Correlators and superprotected operators

Donovan Young (Humbold U.)

Title: Supersymmetric Wilson loops on S^2: Correlators and superprotected operators

Abstract: I will discuss the connection between supersymmetric Wilson loops on S^2 in N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory and regular Wilson loops in two dimensional pure Yang-Mills. The talk will concentrate on correlators of such loops, and the operators which arise as a result of shrinking such loops to a point. Connections to the recent related work based on localization techniques will also be presented.
