Graduate Algebra and Representation Theory Seminar

On the Classification of Holomorphic Vertex Operator Algebras of Central Charge 24

Sven Moeller, Rutgers University

Location:  Hill 525
Date & time: Wednesday, 14 February 2018 at 12:00PM - 1:00PM

Abstract: I will describe the current state of research concerning the classification of (strongly rational) holomorphic vertex operator algebras (VOAs) of central charge c=24 (dubbed Schellekens' list). Moreover, I will explain how (probably) all 71 cases on Schellekens' list can be obtained as cyclic orbifold constructions from the Leech lattice VOA in analogy to the construction of the Niemeier lattices from the deep holes of the Leech lattice.
