The large-charge approach consists in studying conformal field theories in sectors of fixed and large global charge, allowing a perturbative expansion of a generically strongly coupled theory with the inverse charge acting as a controlling parameter. After a general introduction, I will discuss its applications to O(N) vector models, matrix models, super-conformal field theories in sectors of large R-charge, and non-relativistic CFTs.
