Conference paper
Part of the Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics book series (PROMS, volume 111)


This contribution is short presentation of the work (Nedanovski, D, Superconformal vertex algebras in four dimensions. arXiv:1401.0884v1 [hep-th]) in which the vertex algebra techniques in four dimensions are used for developing a superfield formalism for quantum fields with extended superconformal symmetry.
