Research in theoretical particle physics on the ``accidental" occurrence of Higgs branches (moduli spaces of exact vacua with no free low energy gauge degrees of freedom) in N=2 supersymmetric IR fixed point theories (interacting conformal field theories) which are embedded in UV asymptotically free theories which do not have any Higgs branches.
