Superconformal Index

This Journal Club will be on the superconformal index. It will be based on the paper [1]. If you feel like reading something before the JC though I highly recommend section 2 of [2]. It's quite short and it's easy reading.

I will start by talking about the Witten Index in [2], its relation so SUSY breaking and say something about what an index is. I will then look at indices in conformal field theories and superconformal field theories [1].
