Nuclear Theory/RIKEN Seminar
"Analyticity in Spin and Causality in Conformal Theories"
Presented by Simon Caron-Huot, McGill
2 pm, Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510
Friday, April 28, 2017, 2:00 pm
Hosted by: 'Heikki Mantysaari'
The conformal bootstrap aims to calculate scaling dimensions and correlation functions in various theories, starting from general principles such as unitarity and crossing symmetry. I will explain that local operators are not independent of each other but organize into analytic functions of spin, and I will present a formula, extending a classic one due to Froissart and Gribov in the early days of Regge theory, which quantifies the consequences of this fact. Applications will include a new way to solve crossing symmetry at large spin, as well as new bounds encoding bulk locality in theories with a gravity dual. Based on 1703.00278.
