Summary: We classify all polynomial solutions of the Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov equation for the Möbius invariant 4-point amplitude of a primary field of the \(su_ 2\) conformal current algebra. The exposition is based on (and reviews) recent work of Louis Michel and the authors [L. Michel, Y. S. Stanev and I. T. Todorov, Theor. Math. Phys. 92, No. 3, 1063-1074 (1992) and Teor. Mat. Fiz. 92, No. 3, 507-521 (1992)] on \({\mathcal D}_ 3\) invariant rational 4-point functions and the local extensions of \(su_ 2\) current algebras.
