It is believed that the two-dimensional massless N = 2 Wess-Zumino model becomes the N = 2 superconformal field theory (SCFT) in the infrared (IR) limit. We examine this theoretical conjecture of the Landau-Ginzburg (LG) description of the N = 2 SCFT by numerical simulations on the basis of a supersymmetric-invariant momentum-cutoff regularization. We study a single supermultiplet with cubic and quartic superpotentials. From two-point correlation functions in the IR region, we measure the scaling dimension and the central charge, which are consistent with the conjectured LG description of the A2 and A3 minimal models, respectively. Our result supports the theoretical conjecture and, at the same time, indicates a possible computational method of correlation functions in the N = 2 SCFT from the LG description.
