Bootstrapping the 6d N=(2,0) theory

The conformal bootstrap program has been very successful recently as a non-perturbative approach to study conformal field theories. In this talk I will describe the results of an upcoming paper where it is applied to six-dimensional N=(2,0) superconformal field theories. Consistency of the four-point function of the stress tensor multiplet yields numerical bounds on OPE coefficients and operator dimensions. In particular we obtain a central charge lower bound, which we believe to be saturated by an existing theory.
