Abstract: I will be talking about the rational conformal field theory called the Ising model. It is the simplest non-trivial example of the material presented in Charles' and Jonathan's talks. I will begin the talk by defining rational conformal field theory. The notion of correlation functions in conformal field theories will then naturally lead to conformal blocks. To keep things concrete I will then present the Ising model as an explicit example.
