DESCRIPTION:Indices are a powerful tool to analyse the dynamics of supersy
mmetric field theories\; for instance\, supersymmetric indices for non-con
formal susy field theories can be used to explore their RG flows.\nAn inte
resting class of indices can be defined by placing (non conformal) supersy
mmetric field theories on S^dxS^1 preserving susy. For N=1 this index is
related to the N=1 superconformal index in a simple way. \nFor N=2 superco
nformal theories one can also define an index but its extension to non con
formal N=2 field theories is not possible. Nevertheless\, I will show that
a particular limit of the N=2 superconformal index\, the "Schur limit"\,
can be defined for non conformal field theories. I will then explore the p
roperties and uses of this index.\nhttps://indico.nbi.ku.dk/event/979/cont
