Space of local fields in integrable field theory and deformed abelian differentials

  • Feodor A. Smirnov


In this talk I consider the space of local operators in integrable field theory. This space allows two different descriptions. The first of them is due to conformal field theory which provides a universal picture of local properties in quantum field theory. The second arises from counting solutions to form factors equations. Considering the example of the restricted sine-Gordon model I show that these two very different descriptions give the same result. I explain that the formulae for the form factors are given in terms of deformed hyper-elliptic integrals. The properties of these integrals, in particular the deformed Riemann bilinear relation, are important for describing the space of local operators.
