  • A bstractWe study the conformal bootstrap for a 4-point function of fermions 〈ψψψψ〉 in 3D. We first introduce an embedding formalism for 3D spinors and compute the conformal blocks appearing in fermion 4-point functions. Using these results, we find general bounds on the dimensions of operators appearing in the ψ × ψ OPE, and also on the central charge CT . We observe features in our bounds that coincide with scaling dimensions in the GrossNeveu models at large N . We also speculate that other… CONTINUE READING
