Abstract: Conformal nets and VOAs are two different ways to axiomatize (unitary) chiral conformal field theory. Unlike VOAs whose approach is mainly algebraic, the theory of conformal nets puts more emphasis on functional analysis and operator algebras. In this talk I will discuss the motivations behind conformal nets, and their relations with VOAs.
