Representation theory of vertex operator algebras


None; material will be made available.


Some experience with vertex operator algebra theory would be helpful.


We will develop the axiomatics and constructions of vertex operator algebras, modules, twisted modules, and tensor categories, with many applications. Current research problems in this very active field will be discussed.
