OVERVIEW: 


The fields of integrability and conformal bootstrap have had an impressive development in the last few years. Currently many researchers are working on these fields and the community is quite widespread around the globe. Both fields methods solve conformal theories nonperturbatively. It is well known that conformal theories are important in many areas of physics such as gauge field theories, quantum gravity and the theory of critical points in statistical mechanics.


The idea of trying to use bootstrap methods for solving conformal theories is being developed for many years. In the case of two dimensions, conformal invariance implies an infinite dimensional algebra of conserved charges and many progresses were made. The higher dimensional cases received a lot of attention in the last ten years. In parallel, new integrability methods were developed to computed higher-point correlation functions.


The workshop will bring together researchers from both fields. We believe new links between the fields are going to be discovered in the future. Brazil hosted four events in the last two years about these topics. This will be the first one in the Northeast of Brazil.

 

MAIN TOPICS TO BE DISCUSSED: 

 

  • Integrability in Gauge Theories;
  • Correlation Functions;
  • Fishnet Theories;
  • AdS/CFT;
  • Conformal Bootstrap;
  • S-matrix Bootstrap.
