@article{Jain2021HigherS3, title={Higher spin 3-point functions in 3d CFT using spinor-helicity variables}, author={Sachin Jain and Renjan Rajan John and Abhishek Mehta and Amin A. Nizami and Adithya Suresh}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2021} }

Abstract
In this paper we use the spinor-helicity formalism to calculate 3-point functions involving scalar operators and spin-s conserved currents in general 3d CFTs. In spinor-helicity variables we notice that the parity-even and the parity-odd parts of a correlator are related. Upon converting spinor-helicity answers to momentum space, we show that correlators involving spin-s currents can be expressed in terms of some simple conformally invariant conserved structures. This in particular… Expand
