The BMS Bootstrap

  title={The BMS Bootstrap},
  author={Arjun Bagchi and Mirah Gary and Zodinmawia},
We initiate a study of the bootstrap programme for field theories with BMS symmetry. Specifically, we look at two-dimensional field theories with BMS3 symmetry and using highest weight representations we construct the BMS bootstrap equation by formulating the notion of crossing symmetry in the four-point functions of these field theories. In the limit of large central charge, we find analytic expressions for the BMS blocks that are the basic ingredients for the solution of the bootstrap…

The nuts and bolts of the BMS Bootstrap
In this paper, we elaborate on aspects of the recently introduced BMS bootstrap programme. We consider two-dimensional (2d) field theories with BMS3 symmetry and extensively use highest weight
BMS modular diaries: torus one-point function
Two dimensional field theories invariant under the Bondi-Metzner-Sachs (BMS) group are conjectured to be dual to asymptotically flat spacetimes in three dimensions. In this paper, we continue our
Correlation functions of warped CFT
A bstractWarped conformal field theory (WCFT) is a two dimensional quantum field theory whose local symmetry algebra consists of a Virasoro algebra and a U(1) Kac-Moody algebra. In this paper, we
Asymptotic structure of N=2$$ \mathcal{N}=2 $$ supergravity in 3D: extended super-BMS3 and nonlinear energy bounds
A bstractThe asymptotically flat structure of N=20$$ \mathcal{N}=\left(2,0\right) $$ supergravity in three spacetime dimensions is explored. The asymptotic symmetries are found to be spanned by an
Linking Past and Future Null Infinity in Three Dimensions
We provide a mapping between past null and future null infinity in three-dimensional flat space, using symmetry considerations. From this we derive a mapping between the corresponding asymptotic
