OPE coefficients in ABJM theory with giants

room Zoom, instructions in abstract

In this talk, I will discuss a family of three-point functions in ABJM theory, both at weak and strong coupling. This family of three-point functions involve two BPS sub-determinant operators called giant gravitons and one single trace operator, which can be BPS or non-BPS. In the first part of the talk, I will explain how to compute this type of three-point function at weak coupling using a large N effective field theory. The structure constant is given by the overlap of an integrable matrix product state and a Bethe state. In the second part, I will first clarify the prescription of computation at strong coupling. I will show that it is important to perform an average over the moduli space and also take into account the contributions from wave functions. The prescription is tested in N=4 SYM theory and then applied to ABJM theory.--------- Part of the London Integrability Journal Club.
