Conformal Partial Waves: Further Mathematical Results
Further results for conformal partial waves for four point functions for conformal primary scalar fields in conformally invariant theories are obtained. They are de- fined as eigenfunctions of the
Conformal partial waves in momentum space
The decomposition of 4-point correlation functions into conformal partial waves is a central tool in the study of conformal field theory. We compute these partial waves for scalar operators in
Conformal four-point correlation functions from the operator product expansion
Abstract We show how to compute conformal blocks of operators in arbitrary Lorentz representations using the formalism described in [1, 2] and present several explicit examples of blocks derived via
On conformal blocks, crossing kernels and multi-variable hypergeometric functions
Abstract In this note, we present an alternative representation of the conformal block with external scalars in general spacetime dimensions in terms of a finite summation over Appell fourth
Recursion relations for conformal blocks
A bstractIn the context of conformal field theories in general space-time dimension, we find all the possible singularities of the conformal blocks as functions of the scaling dimension Δ of the

A bstractWe revisit the problem of performing conformal block decomposition of exchange Witten diagrams in the crossed channel. Using properties of conformal blocks and Witten diagrams, we discover
Radial Coordinates for Conformal Blocks
We develop the theory of conformal blocks in CFT_d expressing them as power series with Gegenbauer polynomial coefficients. Such series have a clear physical meaning when the conformal block is
Simplifying large spin bootstrap in Mellin space
A bstractWe set up the conventional conformal bootstrap equations in Mellin space and analyse the anomalous dimensions and OPE coefficients of large spin double trace operators. By decomposing the
Conformal two-point correlation functions from the operator product expansion
We compute the most general embedding space two-point function in arbitrary Lorentz representations in the context of the recently introduced formalism in [ 1 , 2 ]. This work provides a first


Four-point functions in N = 4 SYM
A new derivation is given of four-point functions of charge Q chiral primary multiplets in N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory. A compact formula, valid for arbitrary Q, is given which is
Jack Polynomials in Superspace
AbstractThis work initiates the study of orthogonal symmetric polynomials in superspace. Here we present two approaches leading to a family of orthogonal polynomials in superspace that generalize the
Conformal Algebra in Space-Time and Operator Product Expansion
The topics discussed are the conformal group in space-time, broken conformal symmetry, restrictions from conformal covariance on equal-time commutators, manifestly conformal covariant structure of
Generalized Power Series Expansions for a Class of Orthogonal Polynomials in Two Variables
This paper continues the analysis of a class of orthogonal polynomials in two variables on a region bounded by two straight lines and a parabola touching these lines, which was introduced by the

Jack Superpolynomials, Superpartition Ordering and Determinantal Formulas
Abstract: We call superpartitions the indices of the eigenfunctions of the supersymmetric extension of the trigonometric Calogero-Moser-Sutherland model. We obtain an ordering on superpartitions from
