This review summarizes Effective Field Theory techniques, which are the theoretical tools for exploiting the existence of hierarchies of scale in a physical problem. The general theoretical framework is described, and evaluated for a simple model.

This is a set of lecture notes on the operator algebraic approach to 2-dimensional conformal field theory. Representation theoretic aspects and connections to vertex operator algebras are emphasized. No knowledge on operator algebras is assumed.

The purpose is to study interacting particles in the General Relativity context, by the principle of least action using purely classical concepts. The particles are described by a state tensor using a Clifford algebra for the kinematic part.
