TITLE
High dimension operators of high dimension CFTs
ABSTRACT
I will discuss universal behavior of conformal field theory (CFT) data at high energies. In particular I will discuss universal formulas for both the entropy and the three-point-functions of local operators for d-dimensional CFT (d>2) as a function of energy and spin, using a technique called thermal effective field theory. This result can be thought of as a higher-dimensional version of Cardy's formula for 2d CFTs. I will also discuss holographic interpretations of this result. Based on arXiv:2306.08031 and work to appear.
