Bootstrapping critical gauge theories

19 May 2022, 15:15


Yin-Chen He (Perimeter Institute)


I will talk about our recent progress on bootstrapping critical gauge theories. In specific, I will first introduce the current understanding that why bootstrap works, for example, why a CFT can sit at a kink of bootstrap bounds and why CFT can be isolated as an island. Then, I will apply these idea to a prototypical critical gauge theory--the scalar QED (i.e. SU(N) deconfined phase transition), and demonstrate it can be isolated in a bootstrap island when the matter flavour is large.
