Abstract

We show how to extract from conjectured S-dualities the dimensions and flavor symmetry transformation properties of certain Higgs branches (hypermultiplet flat directions) of strongly coupled N=2 d=4 superconformal field theories. This leads to an expansion and refinement of the exact data (conformal dimensions, central charges) that can be computed for N=2 SCFTs.
