In this note we consider boundary perturbations in the A-Series unitary minimal models by r,r+2 fields on superpositions of boundaries. In particular, we consider perturbations by boundary condition changing operators. Within conformal perturbation theory we explicitly map out the space of perturbative renormalisation group flows for the example 13 and find that this sheds light on more general r,r+2 perturbations. Finally, inspired by a lattice realisation we find a simple diagrammatic…
