Quantum Error Correcting Codes in CFTs
Al Shapere, University of Kentucky,

There is a CFT naturally associated to any self-dual quantum stabilizer code.  For these "code CFTs", the constraints of modular invariance reduce to simple algebraic equations satisfied by the enumerator polynomial of the code, which can be solved à la bootstrap to derive spectral bounds and to provide many examples of physically distinct CFTs with identical spectra.  

The talk is in 469 Lauritsen.
