Conformal collider physics : Energy and charge correlations

  title={Conformal collider physics : Energy and charge correlations},
  author={Diego M. Hofman and Juan Mart́ın Maldacena},
We study observables in a conformal field theory which are very closely related to the ones used to describe hadronic events at colliders. We focus on the correlation functions of the energies deposited on calorimeters placed at a large distance from the collision. We consider initial states produced by an operator insertion and we study some general properties of the energy correlation functions for conformal field theories. We argue that the small angle singularities of energy correlation… CONTINUE READING
