Description
In this talk, I will explain how to use the numerical bootstrap method to study N=1 superconformal field theories in 2+1 dimensions. The applications include studying the critical exponents of the minimal SCFT in (2+1)D (super-Ising model) and Wess-Zumino models with a superpotential term preserving either S_n (permutation group) or SU(N) symmetry. I will also discussion how to use the result to test a conjectured N=1 duality between a Wess-Zumino model and a super QED.
