*“Charting the Space of Quantum Field Theories”*


*“Quantum field theory is the universal language of theoretical physics,
underlying the Standard Model of elementary particles, the physics of the
early Universe and a host of condensed matter phenomena such as phase
transitions and superconductors. A great achievement of 20th century
physics was the understanding of weakly coupled quantum field theories,
where interactions can be treated as small perturbations of otherwise
freely moving particles. However, weakly coupled theories are just a tiny
island in the ocean of possibilities, and fail to describe some of the most
interesting physical phenomena. In this colloquium I will describe the
astonishing discovery that in many physical systems, there is
a unique quantum field theory that satisfies the general constrains of
symmetry and quantum mechanics. This strategy, known as the bootstrap,
allows to make sharp predictions for physical observables even in strongly
coupled theories. **These ideas have wide implications across theoretical

Tutti gli interessati sono invitati a partecipare.
