We consider structure constants of single-trace operators at strong coupling in planar $\mathcal{N}=4$ SYM theory using the hexagon formalism. We concentrate on heavy-heavy-light correlators where the heavy operators are BMN operators, with large R-charges and finite anomalous dimensions, and the light one is a finite-charge chiral primary operator...

A proper definition of the path integral of quantum gravity has been a long-standing puzzle because the Weyl factor of the Euclidean metric has a wrong-sign kinetic term. We propose a definition of two-dimensional Liouville quantum gravity with cosmological constant using conformal bootstrap for the timelike Liouville theory coupled to supercritica...

Superstrata are smooth horizonless microstate geometries for the supersymmetric D1-D5-P black hole in type IIB supergravity. In the CFT, 'superstratum states' are defined to be the component of the supergraviton gas that is obtained by breaking the CFT into '$|00\rangle$-strands' and acting on each strand with the 'small,' anomaly-free superconform...

Using the fermionic basis we conjecture exact expressions for diagonal finite volume matrix elements of exponential operators and their descendants in the sinh-Gordon theory. Our expressions sum up the LeClair-Mussardo type infinite series generalized by Pozsgay for excited state expectation values. We checked our formulae against the Liouville thr...

We consider the two-dimensional quantum Toda field theory with an imaginary background charge. This conformal field theory has a higher spin symmetry (W n algebra), a central charge and a continuous spectrum. Using the conformal bootstrap, we compute structure constants involving two arbitrary scalar fields and a semi-degenerate field of Wyllard ty...

The Landau-gauge gluon and ghost correlation functions obtained in lattice simulations can be reproduced qualitatively and, to a certain extent, quantitatively if a gluon mass is added to the standard Faddeev-Popov action. This has been tested extensively at one loop, for the two and three point correlation functions of the gluons, ghosts and quark...

We initiate the study of four-point functions of large BPS operators at any value of the coupling. We do it by casting it as a sum over exchange of superconformal primaries and computing the structure constants using integrability. Along the way, we incorporate the nested Bethe ansatz structure to the hexagon formalism for the three-point functions...

This article is the third and last of a series presenting an alternative method to compute the one-loop scalar integrals. It extends the results of first two articles to the infrared divergent case. This novel method enjoys a couple of interesting features as compared with the methods found in the literature. It directly proceeds in terms of the qu...

This article is the second of a series of three presenting an alternative method to compute the one-loop scalar integrals. It extends the results of the first article to general complex masses. Let us remind the main features enjoyed by this method. It directly proceeds in terms of the quantities driving algebraic reduction methods. It applies to t...

This article is the first of a series of three presenting an alternative method to compute the one-loop scalar integrals. This novel method enjoys a couple of interesting features as compared with the method closely following 't Hooft and Veltman adopted previously. It directly proceeds in terms of the quantities driving algebraic reduction methods...
