The topics are organized in two main parts: Part I deals with conformal eld theory, in particular two-dimensional conformal eld theory, while Part II is concerned with string theory. The topics labelled by [B] are more introductory and can also be done by Bachelor students. We have given a preliminary list of suggested references for eachFile Size: KB. 5. Full local two-dimensional conformal field theories are defined on two-dimensional man-ifolds with a conformal structure, i.e. with a class of Riemannian metrics up to local rescaling: two metrics g,g0on a manifold M are thus identified, if there is a nowhere vanishing function λ: M→R + such that g0(x) = λ(x)g(x) for all x∈M.

Quantum Field Theory and Critical Phenomena Jean Zinn-Justin. Quantum field theory has become the framework for the discussion of all fundamental interactions except gravity, and for the understanding of second order phase transitions in statistical mechanics. You can write a book review and share your experiences. Other readers will always. Introduction to Conformal Field Theory Antonin Rovai Introduction These lecture notes consist of an elementary introduction to Conformal Field Theory (CFT). This class of theories have the property that they are invariant under so called conformal transfor-mations, that may be seen as local scale : Antonin Rovai.
Fundamental concepts of phase transitions, such as order parameters, spontaneous symmetry breaking, scaling transformations, conformal symmetry and anomalous dimensions, have deeply changed the modern vision of many areas of physics, leading to remarkable developments in statistical mechanics, elementary particle theory, condensed matter physics and string theory. Progress is summarized in these areas: a new formulation of two dimensional critical phenomena and string theory, supersymmetric critical phenomena and string compactification, conformal field theory on orbifolds, Gaussian models with twisted boundary conditions, modular invariance and supersymmetric critical phenomena, critical indices, conformal invariance, and current algebra.

Conformal Field Theory and Critical Phenomena in Two Dimensional Systems 1st Edition. by A.B. Zamolodchikov (Author) ISBN ISBN Why is ISBN important. ISBN. This bar-code number lets you verify that you're getting exactly the right version or edition of a book. Author: A.B.
Zamolodchikov. This book provides an introduction to conformal field theory and a review of its applications to critical phenomena in condensed-matter systems. After reviewing simple phase transitions and explaining the foundations of conformal invariance and the algebraic methods required, it proceeds to the explicit calculation of four-point correlators.
The aim of this book is to provide the reader with an introduction to conformal field theory and its applications to topology. The author starts with a description of geometric aspects of conformal field theory based on loop groups. By means of the holonomy of conformal field theory he defines topological invariants for knots and 3-manifolds.

Conformal Field Theory and Critical Phenomena in Two Dimensional Systems: A.B. Zamolodchikov: Books - or: A.B. Zamolodchikov. Conformal eld theory has been an important tool in theoretical physics during the last decades.
Its origins can be traced back on the one hand to statistical mechanics, and on the other hand to string theory. Historically the most important impetus came from statistical mechanics, where it described and classi ed critical phenomena. Mainly after. In this article we present a brief review of the conformal symmetry and the two-dimensional conformal quantum field theories.
As concrete applications of the conformal theories to the critical phenomena in statistical systems, we calculate the value of central charge and the anomalous scale dimensions of the Z 2 symmetric quantum chain with boundary : Bo-wei Xu.

Filling an important gap in the literature, this comprehensive text develops conformal field theory from first principles. The treatment is self-contained, pedagogical, and exhaustive, and includes a great deal of background material on quantum field theory, statistical mechanics, Lie algebras and affine Lie algebras.
It introduces Conformal Field Theory at a basic level, Kac-Moody algebras, one-loop partition functions, Superconformal Field Theories, Gepner Models and Boundary Conformal Field Theory.

In a conformal quantum field theory the cobordisms are equipped with a conformal structure (a Riemannian metric structure modulo pointwise rescaling): conformal cobordisms.
A conformal field theory (CFT). Conformal Field Theory Prof. Cardy - Trinity Term Conformal symmetry is a powerful tool for studying critical behaviour, particularly as applied to two-dimensional classical systems, and to quantum systems in one dimension.

Moreover, it turns out that conformal ﬁeld theories in two dimensions provide rare examples of interacting, yet exactly solvable, quantum ﬁeld theories.
