The large charge expansion

Regular Seminar Susanne Reffert (University of Bern)

13:45 KCL
room Zoom, See abstract.

In has become clear in recent years that working in sectors of large global charge of strongly coupled and otherwise inaccessible CFTs leads to important simplifications. It is indeed possible to formulate an effective action in which the large charge appears as a control parameter. In this talk, I will explain the basic notions of the large-charge expansion using the simple example of the O(2) model and then generalize to models with a richer structure which showcase other effects.
