In any consistent massive quantum field theory there are well-known bounds on scattering amplitudes at high energies. In conformal field theory there is no scattering amplitude, but the Mellin amplitude is a well-defined object analogous to the scattering amplitude. We prove bounds at high energies on Mellin amplitudes in conformal field theories, valid under certain technical assumptions. Such bounds are derived by demanding the absence of spurious singularities in position space correlators… Expand
