Defects in conformal field theory

By Ingo Runkel University of Hamburg

The most fundamental observables of a quantum field theory are localised at points, such as the quantum fields themselves. But observables localised on higher-dimensional submanifolds can carry important information, too, the most famous example being Wilson lines in gauge theory. In this talk I want to explain some features of two-dimensional conformal field theories and their one-dimensional observables, or, more generally their one-dimensional line defects
