**Conformal Field Theory on the Plane**

by Sylvain Ribault

**Publisher**: arXiv 2014**Number of pages**: 119

**Description**:

We provide an introduction to conformal field theory on the plane in the conformal bootstrap approach. We introduce the main ideas of the bootstrap approach to quantum field theory, and how they apply to two-dimensional theories with local conformal symmetry. We describe the mathematical structures which appear in such theories, from the Virasoro algebra and its representations, to the BPZ equations and their solutions.
