I am reading a book (Di Francesco's "CFT", pg 337) in which it is given that if we take the operator that translates the system along some direction (which is a combination of time and space) as 'A', then the partition function is just trace(A).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How do we get this?
