Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to understand how N=4 SYM works, but I can't find anything very helpful, only very technical articles. Assuming that I have the basics (or at least currently working on it) of your basic QFT from Peskin, Srednicki etc, what would be the next step? Conformal field theory? Supersymmetry by itself?

All the SYM papers on arxiv which I find are only ads/cft spam :) which assume a lot of background so it's hard to filter through them all..I'm looking for something that starts from scratch, has examples, explains how you use all the extra symmetries, etc.

Any recommendations would be great!
