Zuckerman Postdoctoral Scholar, Shai Chester, and colleagues develop new tools for isolating CFTs using the numerical bootstrap. A “cutting surface” algorithm for scanning OPE coeﬃcients makes it possible to ﬁnd islands in high-dimensional spaces. Together with recent progress in large-scale semi deﬁnite programming, this enables bootstrap studies of much larger systems of correlation functions than was previously practical.
