Idea

Kazama-Suzuki models are 2d SCFTs which generalize the class of Gepner models. Instead of trivial tensoring of minimal models, Kazana-Suzuki models are built by a superconformal coset space method to yield a central charge as needed for internal consistency of Superstring compactification.

The method involves a generalized form of N=1 SCFT super current algebra to yield OPEs of N=2 2d SCFT. This yields a class of 2d SCFTs based on Hermitian manifold symmetric spaces.
