The supersymmetric gauge theory N=4 Super-Yang-Mills in four dimensions is a superconformal theory and is believed to be integrable forany value of the coupling constant. In addition, due to the AdS/CFT conjecture, this theory is considered to be dual to the theory of superstrings in AdS_5 x S^5.Using integrability techniques, the computation of the spectrum of the theory is considered to be formally a solved problem. The next step in solving thetheory is the computation of its structure constants. In this project, we will study the three-point functions of operators in the rank one sectors in a more generalsetup of the ones already studied, we also plan to investigate the extremal limit and study non-planar corrections. Moreover, we intend to study scalar productsof Bethe states in higher rank groups. Finally, we plan to study the loop corrections for the structure constants and may find predictions for their values at any value of thecoupling constant using an axiomatic approach. (AU)
