40) where the ellipsis denote non-singular terms. Operator Product Expansion of the Energy–Momentum Tensor After having defined the operator product expansion, let us now consider the example of the energy–momentum tensor. We first state that The OPE of the chiral energy–momentum tensor with itself reads T (z)T (w) = c/2 2 T (w) Ѩw T (w) + + + ... 41) where c denotes the central charge and |z| > |w|. A similar result holds for the anti-chiral part T (z), and the OPE T (z) T (w) contains only non-singular terms.
The condition of charge conservation then corresponds to momentum conservation in space–time. Current Algebra After having verified the conformal dimension of the vertex operator√Vα =: eiα X : 2 2 to be (h, h) = ( α2 , α2 ), let us now turn to the special case α = ± 2 for which V±√2 (z, z) has conformal dimension (h, h) = (1, 1). Therefore, following our definition from p. 37, these fields are currents. In order to simplify our discussion in this paragraph, let us focus only on the holomorphic part of the vertex operator (including the position operator x0 ) which we write as 54 2 Basics in Conformal Field Theory j ± (z) = : e±i √ 2X :, and study the current algebra of j ± (z) and j(z) = i(ѨX )(z).
As known from quantum field theory, since the φi are operators, we need to give an 38 2 Basics in Conformal Field Theory ordering prescription for such products. This will be normal ordering which in QFT language means “creation operators to the left”. In this section, we will illustrate that the regular part of an OPE provides a notion of normal ordering for the product fields. Normal Ordering Prescription Let us start by investigating what are the creation and what are the annihilation operators in a CFT.
