I work at INFN Torino.
I try to understand non-perturbative physics in many ways, including string theory, supersymmetry,
integrability and effective field theories.

The large charge approach allows to describe special sectors of strongly-coupled systems. When another controlling parameter is present, it is still useful because it allows to unveil interesting mathematical structures and access previously unexplored parts of the spectrum. In this talk I will concentrate on the O(N) vector model in the large-N limit, give a geometrical interpretation of the asymptotic expansion of the dimension of the lowest operator of fixed charge, and use resurgence to resum this expansion. The result suggests an unexpected interplay between conformal symmetry and resurgence and will lead to an intuitive interpretation for the impressive agreement of the large-charge predictions with lattice data also in the O(2) model case. Based on 1610.04495, 2008.03308, 2102.12488.

The large charge approach allows to describe special sectors of strongly-coupled systems. When another controlling parameter is present, it is still useful because it allows to unveil interesting mathematical structures and access previously unexplored parts of the spectrum. In this talk I will discuss the case of fermionic CFTs in three dimensions. Depending on the model and the nature of the fixed charge, we find two types of descriptions: in terms of a superfluid or a Fermi sphere. We explicitly compute the conformal dimensions of the lowest operator of fixed charge and in the superfluid case verify the EFT predictions for the phonon spectrum
