Four-point correlation modular bootstrap for OPE densities

  title={Four-point correlation modular bootstrap for OPE densities},
  author={Carlos A. Cardona and Cynthia A. Keeler and William Munizzi},
In this work we apply the lightcone bootstrap to a four-point function of scalars in two-dimensional conformal field theory. We include the entire Virasoro symmetry and consider non-rational theories with a gap in the spectrum from the vacuum and no conserved currents. For those theories, we compute the large dimension limit (h/c 1) of the OPE spectral decomposition of the Virasoro vacuum. We then propose a kernel ansatz that generalizes the spectral decomposition beyond h/c 1 . Finally, we… Expand

Universal spectrum of 2d conformal field theory in the large c limit
A bstractTwo-dimensional conformal field theories exhibit a universal free energy in the high temperature limit T → ∞, and a universal spectrum in the Cardy regime, Δ → ∞. We show that a muchExpand

Loops in Anti-de Sitter Space.
It is argued that the critical exponents of correlation functions near the conformal boundary of anti-de Sitter space provide the necessary data for the renormalization conditions, thus replacing the usual on-shell condition. Expand
Solving the 3D Ising Model with the Conformal Bootstrap
We study the constraints of crossing symmetry and unitarity in general 3D conformal field theories. In doing so we derive new results for conformal blocks appearing in four-point functions of scalarsExpand
Universality of long-distance AdS physics from the CFT bootstrap

Analyticity in spin in conformal theories

Universal asymptotics of three-point coefficients from elliptic representation of Virasoro blocks
In (1+1)-d CFTs, the 4-point function on the plane can be mapped to the pillow geometry and thereby crossing symmetry gets translated into a modular property. This feature arises from the VirasoroExpand
