  • We use the conformal bootstrap to perform a precision study of the operator spectrum of the critical 3d Ising model. We conjecture that the 3d Ising spectrum minimizes the central charge $$c$$c in the space of unitary solutions to crossing symmetry. Because extremal solutions to crossing symmetry are uniquely determined, we are able to precisely reconstruct the first several $$\mathbb {Z}_2$$Z2-even operator dimensions and their OPE coefficients. We observe that a sharp transition in the… CONTINUE READING
