Title: Mysteries in the Bootstrap
Date: Tue, Mar 08, 2016, 13:15 - 14:45
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: I will describe some mysterious features have appeared in numerical studies of the conformal bootstrap in three and four dimensions. These may constitute the first pieces of evidence that we have found new CFTs using the numerical bootstrap. If so, these theories have intruiging unique properties and there is a possibility that they open a new window into the world of non-Lagrangian CFTs.
