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.

A comprehensive introduction to two-dimensional conformal field theory is given. Conformal field theories have been at the center of attention during the last fifteen years since they are relevant for different areas of modern theoretical physics.

This text helps students fill the gap of knowledge between the QFT courses students take when they start graduate work in theoretical physics, and actual research. The book covers the basics of vitally important techniques used in modern research.
