Abstract

Throughout the previous chapters, we have seen the close relationship between conformal field theory and two-dimensional statistical mechanics. In fact, at criticality, the detailed behavior of a statistical mechanical system gets washed out, and universality sets in. Since we have a complete classification of certain classes of conformal field theories, we should be able to catalog the models of statistical mechanics at criticality according to known representations of conformal field theories.
