<b>HET SEMINAR</b><br>Conformal Bootstrap in Fractional Dimensions

Friday, February 12, 2016
12:00 AM
335 West Hall

I will review the conformal bootstrap in fractional dimensions, with an emphasis on the Ising model in 1<d<2. I will discuss bounds on operator dimensions and compare the results with various theoretical and numerical models, in particular with resummed e-expansion and Monte Carlo simulations of the Ising model on fractal lattices. I will also introduce some ongoing work on supersymmetric CFTs in 2<d<4.
