# Conformal partial wave expansions for N=4 chiral four-point functions

## Abstract

The conformal partial wave analysis of four-point functions of 12-BPS operators belonging to the SU(4) [0,p,0] representation is undertaken for p=2,3,4. Using the results of N=4 superconformal Ward identities the contributions from protected short and semi-short multiplets are identified in terms of the free-field theory. In the large N limit, contributions corresponding to long multiplets with twist up to 2p-2 are absent. The anomalous dimensions for twist two singlet multiplets are found to order g{sup 4} and agree with other perturbative calculations. Results for twist four and six are also found.
