FZZ formula of boundary Liouville CFT via conformal welding

  title={FZZ formula of boundary Liouville CFT via conformal welding},
  author={Morris Ang and Guillaume Remy and Xin Sun},
Liouville Conformal Field Theory (LCFT) on the disk describes the conformal factor of the quantum disk, which is the natural random surface in Liouville quantum gravity with disk topology. Fateev, Zamolodchikov and Zamolodchikov (2000) proposed an explicit expression, the so-called the FZZ formula, for the one-point bulk structure constant for LCFT on the disk. In this paper we give a proof of the FZZ formula in the probabilistic framework of LCFT, which represents the first step towards…

Scale-invariant random geometry from mating of trees: a numerical study
The search for scale-invariant random geometries is central to the Asymptotic Safety hy-pothesis for the Euclidean path integral in quantum gravity. In an attempt to uncover new universality classes
The SLE loop via conformal welding of quantum disks
. We prove that the SLE loop measure arises naturally from the conformal welding of two Liouville quantum gravity (LQG) disks for γ 2 = κ ∈ (0 , 4). The proof relies on our companion work on
Baxter permuton and Liouville quantum gravity
The Baxter permuton is a random probability measure on the unit square which describes the scaling limit of uniform Baxter permutations. We find an explict formula for the expectation of the Baxter
What is a random surface?
Given 2n unit equilateral triangles, there are finitely many ways to glue each edge to a partner. We obtain a random sphere-homeomorphic surface by sampling uniformly from the gluings that produce a

We demonstrate that the conformal loop ensemble (CLE) has a rich integrable structure by establishing exact formulas for two CLE observables. The first describes the joint moments of the conformal
