Title: Deformations of the circular Wilson loop, defect-cft data and spectral independence

Abstract: deformations of the circular Wilson loop in N=4 SYM can be viewed as operators of a defect CFT.  I will review that and discuss some new results for the expectation value of the deformed circle at weak and strong coupling.  I will also present some computations of anomalous dimensions and structure constants.
