16:640:555 - Selected Topics in Algebra

James Lepowsky


Topics in the representation theory of vertex operator algebras

Course Description:

I will continue the development of the theory of intertwining operator algebras from Yi-Zhi Huang's fall, 2017 course. However, I will choose topics relevant to the students' interests, and much of what we cover will be accessible without knowledge of the fall course. This theory is foundational for a wide range of research, and current research problems will be discussed.


None; notes will be available.


Basic algebra and representation theory; Huang's fall, 2017 course will be helpful but is not required.
