Abstract The construction of conformal blocks for the analysis of multipoint correlation functions with N > 4 local field insertions is an important open problem in higher dimensional conformal field theory. This is the first in a series of papers in which we address this challenge, following and extending our short announcement in [1]. According to Dolan and Osborn, conformal blocks can be determined from the set of differential eigenvalue equations that they satisfy. We construct a complete… Expand


Conformal correlation functions in four dimensions from quaternionic Lauricella system
Correlation functions in Euclidean conformal field theories in four dimensions are expressed as representations of the conformal group $SL(2,\H)$, $\H$ being the field of quaternions, on theExpand
From Gaudin Integrable Models to d-Dimensional Multipoint Conformal Blocks.
The main observation is that conformal blocks for N-point functions may be considered as eigenfunctions of integrable Gaudin Hamiltonians, which provides a complete set of differential equations that can be used to evaluate multipoint blocks. Expand
Inozemtsev system as Seiberg-Witten integrable system
In this work we establish that the Inozemtsev system is the Seiberg-Witten integrable system encoding the Coulomb branch physics of 4d N = 2 USp(2N) gauge theory with four fundamental and (for N ≥ 2)Expand
Light-Cone Bootstrap of Higher Point Functions and Wilson Loop Duality.
This work bootstrap correlation functions of the lightest scalar gauge invariant operators in planar non-Abelian conformal gauge theories as their locations approach the cusps of a null polygon. Expand
Recursion relations for 5-point conformal blocks
Abstract We consider 5-point functions in conformal field theories in d > 2 dimensions. Using weight-shifting operators, we derive recursion relations which allow for the computation of arbitraryExpand

All Global One- and Two-Dimensional Higher-Point Conformal Blocks
We introduce a full set of rules to directly express all $M$-point conformal blocks in one- and two-dimensional conformal field theories, irrespective of the topology. The $M$-point conformal blocksExpand
On the Virasoro six-point identity block and chaos
We study six-point correlation functions in two dimensional conformal field theory, where the six operators are grouped in pairs with equal conformal dimension. Assuming large central charge $c$ andExpand
Scattering equations in AdS: scalar correlators in arbitrary dimensions
We introduce a bosonic ambitwistor string theory in AdS space. Even though the theory is anomalous at the quantum level, one can nevertheless use it in the classical limit to derive a novel formulaExpand
