|TITLE||Bootstrap N=1 superconformal field theories in 2+1 dimensions|
In this talk, I will explain how to use numerical bootstrap method to study N=1 superconformal field theories in 2+1 dimensions. Applications of this method include studying the critical exponents of the minimal SCFT in (2+1)D (super-Ising model) and Wess-Zumino models with a superpotential term preserving either S_n (permutation group) or SU(N) symmetry. The super-Ising model was argued in [Science 344, no. 6181, 280 (2014)] to describe a quantum critical point (QCP) at the boundary a 3+1D topological superconductor.
