We present a scheme-independent calculation of the infrared value of the anomalous dimension of the fermion bilinear, $\gamma_{\bar\psi\psi,IR}$ in an SU(3) gauge theory as a function of the number of fermions, $N_f$, via a series expansion in powers of $\Delta_f$, where $\Delta_f=(16.5-N_f)$, to order $\Delta_f^4$. We perform an extrapolation to obtain the first determination of the exact $\gamma_{\bar\psi\psi,IR}$ from continuum field theory. The results are compared with calculations of the… Expand

A bstractWe study the discrete β function of SU(3) gauge theory with Nf = 12 massless fermions in the fundamental representation. Using an nHYP-smeared staggered lattice action and an improved… Expand

A bstractWe present a new lattice study of the discrete β function for SU(3) gauge theory with Nf = 8 massless flavors of fermions in the fundamental representation. Using the gradient flow running… Expand

Renormalization was popularised in the 1940s following the appearance of non- sensical infinities in the calculation of the self-energy of the electron. Notably this led to Quantum Electrodynamics… Expand

We study the conformal window of asymptotically free gauge theories containing $N_f$ flavors of fermion matter transforming to the vector and two-index representations of $SO(N),~SU(N)$ and $Sp(2N)$… Expand

Infrared fixed points of gauge theories provide intriguing targets for the modern conformal bootstrap program. In this work we provide some preliminary evidence that a family of gauged fermionic CFTs… Expand
