Recent Progress in Strongly Coupled Conformal Field Theory

by Vyacheslav Rychkov (CERN - PH/TH)

Wednesday, 26 March 2014 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at CERN ( 4-3-006 - TH Conference Room )
We will discuss recent calculations using conformal bootstrap in conformal field theories in 3 and 4 dimensions. For one particularly famous and experimentally relevant 3d CFT - the critical 3d Ising model - these calculations were taken far enough to produce world-record estimates for the critical exponents. Comparison to other techniques, like RG and the lattice, will also be given.
