EPFL Lectures on Conformal Field Theory in D ≥ 3 Dimensions by Slava Rychkov

By Slava Rychkov

This primer develops Conformal box idea (CFT) from scratch, wherein CFT is seen as any conformally-invariant concept that describes a hard and fast element of a renormalization staff circulation in quantum box theory.

The e-book is split into 4 lectures: Lecture 1 addresses the actual foundations of conformal invariance, whereas Lecture 2 examines the limitations imposed by means of conformal symmetry at the correlation features of neighborhood operators, awarded utilizing the so-called projective null cone – a process sometimes called the embedding formalism. In flip, Lecture three makes a speciality of the radial quantization and the operator product enlargement, whereas Lecture four deals a really short creation to the conformal bootstrap.

Derived from course-based notes, those lectures are meant as a primary aspect of access to this subject for grasp and PhD scholars alike.
