Lectures by Jaume Gomis on conformal field theory, which were given at the Perimeter Institute PSI programme in 2011. This lecture is the first part of the introduction to conformal field theory, which introduces conformal invariance of classical actions, RG flows and fixed points, and the classification of operators.
There are also videos from lectures on this topic from 2009 and 2010, as well as quite a few other topics in theoretical physics- check them out.
Viewers should probably have some knowledge of quantum field theory before watching these, so lectures on a two-part course on that topic can be found here:

Conformal Field Theory (Jaume Gomis @PSI 2011)
I didn't see any videos here on Youtube covering conformal field theory (CFT) other than some more advanced talks, so I thought I would upload these lectures (given by Jaume Gomis in 2011 - NOT my videos! All rights, credit, etc. go to the Perimeter Institute, which can be found at the website linked to below) until I have to time and mastery of the concepts required to be comfortable making my own videos on the topics, which interest me greatly. All the videos come from, and can be downloaded from in various formats and from previous years, the Perimeter Institute (where these lectures took place) website: http://www.perimeterscholars.org/327.html
Before attacking these topics, it would be wise have first have familiarity with quantum field theory. Excellent lectures on these topics given by David Tong (of Cambridge) and Francois David at the Perimeter Institute in 2009 and 2011, respectively, can be seen here:
