Deformation quantization from superconformal symmetry in three dimensions
Chris Beem, IAS,

I will discuss a novel connection between the algebra of local operators in three-dimensional N=4 superconformal field theories and the problem of deformation quantization for hyperkahler cones. This connection leads to a variety of exact results for the three-point couplings of BPS operators in these theories. I will also point out some surprising mathematical consequences of this correspondence.
