Critical exponents for the 3d Ising model from conformal bootstrap

Who: Antonio Rago (Plymouth Particle Theory Group)
When: Monday, February 16, 2015 at 14:15
Where: The CP³ meeting room

In this talk I will describe how the constraints of conformal bootstrap can be applied to investigate conformal field theories in various dimensions.

The prescriptions can be applied to both unitary and non unitary theories allowing for the study of the spectrum of low-lying primary operators.

I will present results for the 2≤D≤6  Yang-Lee model and and for the 3d critical Ising model and I will comment on the application of the method to the boundary transitions of the 3d Ising model.
