    • Bootstrapping Quantum Field Theories 

      Homrich, Alexandre (University of Waterloo, 2024-01-23)
      This thesis compiles a few developments on the S-matrix bootstrap, conformal field theory, and integrability in N = 4 SYM. After an introduction contextualizing the various works that compose this thesis, we present a ...
    • Constructing Exact Correlators In N=4 SYM Using Integrability 

      Coronado, Frank (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-09)
      This thesis is devoted to the study of correlation functions in N = 4 superconformal Yang- Mills theory. We focus on a class of four point functions for which we achieve formal results at finite coupling and explicit ...
    • Correlation Functions of Heavy Operators in AdS/CFT 

      Abajian, Jacob (University of Waterloo, 2024-04-15)
      In this thesis we investigate the holographic dual description of correlation functions of heavy operators in conformal field theory. These heavy operators have scaling dimension that scales with the CFT central charge in ...
    • Exact results in QFT: Minimal Areas and Maximal Couplings 

      Toledo, Jonathan (University of Waterloo, 2016-09-14)
      This thesis is devoted to a two-pronged study of non-perturbative quantum field theory. In Part I we focus on the four-dimensional super conformal $\mathcal{N}=4$ Yang Mills theory. We compute smooth Wilson loops and ...
    • Non-perturbative approaches to Scattering Amplitudes 

      Gomez Cordova, Lucia (University of Waterloo, 2019-09-26)
      This thesis is devoted to the study of scattering amplitudes using two non-perturbative approaches. In Part I we focus on a particular theory known as N = 4 Super-Yang-Mills in four spacetime dimensions. The scattering ...
