Uniqueness of N=4 SYM

  1. Oct 25, 2012 #1
    Hello, I've seen stated in many places that N=4 SYM is a unique theory and I'm wondering why this is. In my reading, I've seen why there is a unique N=4 supermultiplet and this would fix the field content of the theory (up to one caveat I have: why couldn't an N=4 theory contain multiple N=4 supermultiplets interacting among themselves?). However, I haven't been able to find anywhere why the Lagrangian should be unique.

    Thanks!

    Oops, this should have gone in the field theory section. I can't seem to delete it?
