Supersymmetric line operators and their spectral problem
I will discuss BPS invariants associated with quantum line operators in certain supersymmetric quantum field theories. Such operators can be specified via geometric engineering in the UV by assigning a path on a certain curve. In the IR they are described by representation theory data. I will discuss the associated BPS spectral problem and the relevant indices.
