Conformal Anomalies

Abstract

In quantum field theory, classical conformal invariance is almost always broken by quantum effects. In these two lectures I will review the subject at an introductory level, giving an elementary derivation in terms of Feynman diagrams, and discussing possible applications. The lectures will be mostly based on:

  • H. Godazgar and H. Nicolai, Class. Quant. Grav. 35 (2018) 105013
  • H. Godazgar, K. Meissner and H. Nicolai, JHEP 1704 (2017) 165
