Abstract

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 type. The solution obtained is not the analytic continuation of the usual Toda three-point function. Non-scalar primary fields and their three-point functions are also discussed. Non-scalar primary fields are classified by conjugacy classes of the permutation group , and their structure constants are computed explicitly, up to an overall factor.
