Abstract: I will approach the problem of computing OPE coefficients of chiral operators in AD theories with two different methods, namely supersymmetric localization and the conformal bootstrap. Localization offers an approximate result that depends only on the Seiberg-Witten geometry. Whereas the bootstrap method can be used to put rigorous upper and lower bounds. While the validity of the localization result can be trusted only for large quantum numbers, we find remarkable agreement even for low-lying operators.
