Subtitle:

Representation theory of vertex algebras and quantum vertex algebras

Course Description:

I will teach a Topics in Algebra II course with the subtitle vertex algebras and quantum vertex algebras. The course in Fall, 2020 will be a continuation. The material covered in the course will mostly be on the representation theory of vertex algebras and quantum vertex algebras. The two courses in Spring and Fall, 2020 will provide the students who are interested in vertex algebras and related areas the basic necessary material in the representation theory of vertex algebras and quantum vertex algebras. These can be used for their oral exams if they decided to choose this area as their research direction.
