Fuzzy Sphere Meets Bootstrap, November 6-8, 2023

Organized by Yin-Chen He, Zohar Komargodski, Leonardo Rastelli, and Slava Rychkov Conformal field theories (CFTs) represent a vital class of quantum field theories with wide-ranging applications, from quantum gravity to critical phenomena in both classical and quantum matter. CFTs in 3D and higher dimensions are strongly interacting, thus requiring the employment of non-perturbative tools. One such … Read more
