DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Slava Rychkov (IHES\, ENS)\n\n\n\n\n\n\nParaphrasing
Alexander Polyakov\, "Conformal Field Theory is a way to learn about elem
entary particles by studying boiling water".\nThere is a technical stateme
nt behind this joke: Euclidean Conformal Field Theory\, under certain cond
itions\, can be rotated to the Lorentzian signature\, and vice versa. This
means that even statistical physicists studying finite-temperature phase
transitions on a lattice should learn about the Minkowski space! The goal
of this course will be to explain various classical and recent results per
taining to this somewhat surprising conclusion.\n\nPlan of the course:\n-
elementary introduction to Euclidean CFT in d>2 dimensions\n- the Osterwal
der-Schrader theorem about the Wick rotation of general reflection-positiv
e Euclidean Quantum Field Theories\, and its limitations\n- the Luescher-M
ack theorem about continuation of CFT correlation functions to the Lorentz
ian cylinder\, and its limitations\n- recent results about the analytic st
ructure of Lorentzian CFT correlators\n\n\n\n\n\n\nhttps://indico.math.cnr
