"Universality at large transverse spin in defect CFTs"

Abstract: We study the spectrum of defect conformal field theories (CFTs), and show the existence of universal accumulation points in the defect spectrum. This is achieved by obtaining an inversion formula for the bulk to defect OPE, akin to the Lorentzian inversion formula of Caron-Huot for CFTs without defects. We conclude with an outlook for the bootstrap approach to defect CFTs, in particular for cases where extra symmetries, namely supersymmetry, prove constraining.
