Description

We review the conformal bootstrap approach to 4d N=2 superconformal field theories (SCFTs), and how it constrains the space of allowed theories. From the landscape of N=2 SCFTs we focus on the "simplest" interacting theory, an Argyres-Douglas theory, and approach it both with numerical bootstrap techniques and with the Lorentzian inversion formula. We conclude with an outlook for the prospects of approaching other Argyres-Douglas theories.
