Book cover: Conformal Field Theory on the PlaneConformal Field Theory on the Plane
by - arXiv
We provide an introduction to conformal field theory on the plane in the conformal bootstrap approach. We introduce the bootstrap approach to quantum field theory, and how they apply to two-dimensional theories with local conformal symmetry.

Book cover: Introduction to Symplectic Field TheoryIntroduction to Symplectic Field Theory
by - arXiv
We sketch in this article a new theory, which we call Symplectic Field Theory or SFT, which provides an approach to Gromov-Witten invariants of symplectic manifolds and their Lagrangian submanifolds in the spirit of topological field theory.

Book cover: Introduction to Effective Field TheoryIntroduction to Effective Field Theory
by - arXiv
This review summarizes Effective Field Theory techniques, which are the theoretical tools for exploiting the existence of hierarchies of scale in a physical problem. The general theoretical framework is described, and evaluated for a simple model.
