Title: New Developments in d=4, N=2 Superconformal Field Theories [PDF]
Abstract: There have been significant advances in the study of N=2 superconformal field theories in four dimensions, which began with the discovery of the Argyres-Seiberg duality in November 2007.This yielded the first example where the central charge "a" increases in the infrared,and it also gave an interesting example of equivalences of hyperkaehler quotients. Some of these topics will be reviewed.
