** Abstract:
N=4 SYM theory is a finite quantum field theory with unbroken**
** superconformal
invariance. The talk describes some consequences of this**
** invariance
for correlators involving composite gauge invariant operators,**
** of the type
which appear in the AdS/CFT correspondence. In particular,**
** it is explained
how the N=2 harmonic superspace formulation of N=4 SYM**
** together
with Intriligator's `insertion formula' and results on**
** superconformal
covariants can be used to drastically simplify the**
** computation
of such correlators.**
