Covariant approaches to superconformal blocks
A bstractWe develop techniques for computing superconformal blocks in 4d superconformal field theories. First we study the super-Casimir differential equation, deriving simple new expressions forExpand

O ct 2 01 5 Bootstrapping the O ( N ) Vector Models
We study the conformal bootstrap for 3D CFTs with O(N) global symmetry. We obtain rigorous upper bounds on the scaling dimensions of the first O(N) singlet and symmetric tensor operators appearing inExpand

More visible effects of the hidden sector
There is a growing appreciation that hidden sector dynamics may affect the supersymmetry breaking parameters in the visible sector (supersymmetric standard model), especially when the dynamics isExpand

Bootstrapping 3D fermions with global symmetries
A bstractWe study the conformal bootstrap for 4-point functions of fermions 〈ψiψjψkψℓ〉 in parity-preserving 3d CFTs, where ψi transforms as a vector under an O(N ) global symmetry. We compute boundsExpand

Conformal field theories in fractional dimensions.
We study the conformal bootstrap in fractional space-time dimensions, obtaining rigorous bounds on operator dimensions. Our results show strong evidence that there is a family of unitary conformalExpand

More Analytic Bootstrap: Nonperturbative Effects and Fermions
We develop the analytic bootstrap in several directions. First, we discuss the appearance of nonperturbative effects in the Lorentzian inversion formula, which are exponentially suppressed at largeExpand

Abelian hidden sectors at a GeV
We discuss mechanisms for naturally generating GeV-scale hidden sectors in the context of weak-scale supersymmetry. Such low mass scales can arise when hidden sectors are more weakly coupled toExpand

Holographic Grand Unification
We present a framework for grand unification in which the grand unified symmetry is broken spontaneously by strong gauge dynamics, and yet the physics at the unification scale is described by (weaklyExpand

μB-driven electroweak symmetry breaking
Abstract We consider a scenario in which the dominant quartic coupling for the Higgs doublets arises from the F -term potential, rather than the conventional SU ( 2 ) L × U ( 1 ) Y D -term potential,Expand
