# The Fyodorov–Bouchaud formula and Liouville conformal field theory

@article{Remy2020TheFF, title={The Fyodorov–Bouchaud formula and Liouville conformal field theory}, author={Guillaume Remy}, journal={Duke Mathematical Journal}, year={2020} }

In a remarkable paper in 2008, Fyodorov and Bouchaud conjectured an exact formula for the density of the total mass of (sub-critical) Gaussian multiplicative chaos (GMC) associated to the Gaussian free field (GFF) on the unit circle. In this paper we will give a proof of this formula. In the mathematical literature this is the first occurrence of an explicit probability density for the total mass of a GMC measure. The key observation of our proof is that the negative moments of the total mass…
