Abstract: The bootstrap method is a non-Lagrangian approach to solving a CFT directly in terms of non-perturbative data (operator spectrum and the OPE coefficients).
This approach was quite successful in d=2, but its feasibility in d>=3 has been demonstrated only recently.
We will review the most interesting results obtains in d>=3 so far, and the outstanding open problems.
