Plumbing Liouville Theory


Riemann surfaces can be constructed by gluing ( “plumbing”) three holed spheres along their boundary circles. This operation is postulated by the physicists to lift to Conformal Field Theory (CFT) under the name conformal bootstrap. I will explain how this works probabilistically in the case of Liouville CFT. Joint work with Colin Guillarmou, Remi Rhodes and Vincent Vargas.
