QFT: A New Hope

I will describe a new approach for defining and solving a QFT in the non-perturbative regime. In this method, the QFT is thought of as an RG-flow from some mother UV CFT. Conjectured properties of this underlying CFT are used to numerically determine dynamical quantities along the flow. It should be possible to apply this procedure to non-abelian gauge theories, including chiral gauge theories in 4D. I will talk about various tests of the method in the case of field theories in 2D and 3D.
