The aim of the course is to introduce methods, used to solve classical and quantum integrable models, based on the example of the sine (sinh)-Gordon field theory.

  1. Classical integrable models: multiparticle solutions, time delays, conserved charges, integrability
  2. Quantum integrable models:
    1. Conformal quantization scheme: free boson CFT, its perturbations and their integrability
    2. Lagrangian quantization scheme: scattering matrix, its connection to correlators and its analytical structure
    3. Bootstrap quantization scheme: properties of the integrable S-matrix, Zamolodchikov-Fateev algebra, bootstrap program
    4. Quantization via lattice regularizations: inhomogenous XXZ model, its solution and double scaled limit
    5. Correlation functions from form factors: form factor bootstrap
  3. Quantum integrable models in finite volume: Bethe-Yang equations, Lüscher corrections, Thermodynamic Bethe Ansatz
