One of the most interesting current research directions in theoretical high energy physics is studying hardness (complexity) of preparing states or transformation using only simple states and simple operations. This is the essence of conjectured holographic complexity proposals, as well as of ongoing studies of complexity in quantum field theories. In my talk I will discuss complexity in 2-dimensional conformal field theories with a view towards finding a genuine AdS dual of such a notion in quantum field theory. Based on 1904.02713 and an ongoing work with Mario Flory and Volker Schomerus.
