The theory of commuting SLEs is explained from the point of view of conformal field theory. In the “quasi-classical” limit (kappa ->0) the Loewner dynamics is described as a flow of real rational functions. This flow can be identified as the classical Calogero-Moser integrable system restricted to a particular submanifold of the phase space that is carved out by the Lax matrix.

Joint work with Tom Alberts and Nam-Gyu Kang.
