Chapter 16 covers the general properties of the integrable quantum field theories, including how an integrable quantum field theory is characterized by an infinite number of conserved charges. These theories are illustrated by means of significant examples, such as the Sine–Gordon model or the Toda field theories based on the simple roots of a Lie algebra. For the deformations of a conformal theory, it shown how to set up an efficient counting algorithm to prove the integrability of the corresponding model. The chapter focuses on two-dimensional models, and uses the term ‘two-dimensional’ to denote both a generic two-dimensional quantum field theory as well as its Euclidean version.

Keywords:   integrability, Toda field theories, Sine–Gordon model, integrable deformations, Lie algebra
