Scalar conformal primary fields in the Brownian loop soup

  title={Scalar conformal primary fields in the Brownian loop soup},
  author={Federico Camia and Valentino F. Foit and Alberto Gandolfi and Matthew Kleban},
The Brownian loop soup is a conformally invariant statistical ensemble of random loops in two dimensions characterized by an intensity λ > 0, with central charge c = 2λ. Recent progress resulted in an analytic form for the four-point function of a class of scalar conformal primary “layering vertex operators” Oβ with dimensions (∆,∆), with ∆ = λ 10(1− cosβ), that compute certain statistical properties of the model. The Virasoro conformal block expansion of the four-point function revealed the… Expand

New Recipes for Brownian Loop Soups
We define a large new class of conformal primary operators in the ensemble of Brownian loops in two dimensions known as the ``Brownian loop soup,'' and compute their correlation functionsExpand
A Conformal Field Theory for Eternal Inflation
We study a statistical model defined by a conformally invariant distribution of overlapping spheres in arbitrary dimension d. The model arises as the asymptotic distribution of cosmic bubbles in d+1Expand
Twist operator correlation functions in O(n) loop models
Using conformal field theoretic methods we calculate correlation functions of geometric observables in the loop representation of the O(n) model at the critical point. We focus on correlationExpand
The conformally invariant measure on self-avoiding loops
The aim of the present paper is to construct and describe a natural measure on the set of self-avoiding loops in the plane and on any Riemann surface. By a self-avoiding loop on a surface S, we meanExpand
The Brownian loop soup
Abstract.We define a natural conformally invariant measure on unrooted Brownian loops in the plane and study some of its properties. We relate this measure to a measure on loops rooted at a boundaryExpand
The dimension of the planar Brownian frontier is 4/3
In a series of recent preprints, we have proven that with probability one the Hausdorff dimension on the outer boundary of planar Brownian motion is 4/3, confirming a conjecture by Mandelbrot. It isExpand
Two-Dimensional Critical Percolation: The Full Scaling Limit
We use SLE6 paths to construct a process of continuum nonsimple loops in the plane and prove that this process coincides with the full continuum scaling limit of 2D critical site percolation on theExpand
SLE(6) and CLE(6) from Critical Percolation
We review some of the recent progress on the scaling limit of two-dimensional critical percolation; in particular, the convergence of the exploration path to chordal SLE(6) and the "full" scalingExpand
