- The local Callan-Symanzik equation: structure and applications

The local Callan-Symanzik equation

describes the response of a quantum field theory to local scale transformations

in the presence of background sources. The consistency conditions associated

with this anomalous equation can be used to derive powerful constraints on RG

flows. We will discuss various aspects of the equation and present new results

regarding the structure of the anomaly. We then use the equation to write

correlation functions of the trace of the energy-momentum tensor

off-criticality.
