Presented By: Leinweber Center for Theoretical Physics

HET Seminar | Bootstrapping the CFT Landscape

David Poland (Yale)

From critical phenomena to quantum gravity, conformal field
theories (CFTs) describe the universal scale-invariant structures that lie at
the heart of theoretical physics. The conformal bootstrap is the
powerful idea, dating back to the 70’s, that one can use fundamental
consistency conditions to constrain, solve, and map out the space of
conformal field theories. In this talk I will describe recent progress in using
the conformal bootstrap to perform precise calculations and chart the
landscape of 3d CFTs involving interacting scalars, fermions, and gauge fields.
