A bstractWe use analytic conformal bootstrap methods to determine the anomalous dimensions and OPE coefficients for large spin operators in general conformal field theories in four dimensions containing a scalar operator of conformal dimension Δϕ. It is known that such theories will contain an infinite sequence of large spin operators with twists approaching 2Δϕ + 2n for each integer n. By considering the case where such operators are separated by a twist gap from other operators at large spin… 

Conformal bootstrap in the Regge limit

A bstractWe analytically solve the conformal bootstrap equations in the Regge limit for large N conformal field theories. For theories with a parametrically large gap, the amplitude is dominated by

Quantum Regge trajectories and the Virasoro analytic bootstrap

A bstractEvery conformal field theory (CFT) above two dimensions contains an infinite set of Regge trajectories of local operators which, at large spin, asymptote to “double-twist” composites with
