Title:  Supersymmetric cusps in ABJM theory

Abstract: Supersymmetric Wilson loops on contours with a cusp possess an anomalous
dimension whose small angle limit, dubbed the Bremsstrahlung function,
can be determined exactly in N=4 SYM via both localization and
integrability. I will report on progress in extending the same program to ABJM theory in three dimensions. In particular, I will focus on the 1/2-BPS cusp in ABJM and the associated Bremsstrahlung function. I will present a conjecture for its exact expression and test it against a three-loop computation at weak
