The Conformal Bootstrap Approach to Criticality in 3 and 2+1 Dimensions
  AlbaNova and Nordita Colloquium

Thursday 05 December 2019
from 15:15 to 16:15
at Oskar Kleins Auditorium (FR4)
Speaker : Slava Rychkov (IHES, Bures-sur-Yvette and ENS, Paris)
Abstract : The standard view of critical phenomena, such as the liquid-gas critical point or the Curie temperature of a ferromagnet, is through the Renormalization Group. I will describe an alternative – view it as a self-consistent “soup” of interacting fluctuations, governed by tight equations of Conformal Field Theory. This approach is both rigorous and calculable, with unprecedented precision for the 3D Ising model critical exponents.
