 +<​blockquote>​The modern way of understanding relativistic quantum field theories (QFTs) is through renormalization group flows away from conformal field theories (CFTs). In the parameter space of all QFTs, CFTs arise as fixed points with enhanced scale and conformal symmetry. The very ambitions programme of understanding all QFTs thus is intimately related to the classification of all consistent CFTs.<​cite>​https://​iopscience.iop.org/​article/​10.1088/​1361-6382/​aa8003/​pdf</​cite></​blockquote>​

 It is an old idea in particle physics that, in some sense, at sufficiently high energies the masses of the elementary particles should become unimportant. In recent years this somewhat vague hope has acquired a more definite form in the theory of scale transformations,​ or dilatations. It is an old idea in particle physics that, in some sense, at sufficiently high energies the masses of the elementary particles should become unimportant.
