- Abstract: Some classical ideas in complex function theory were rediscovered, from another point of view, in two-dimensional conformal field theory. On the other hand, conformal field theory suggests new ways to look at these old objects, and new theorems about them. In this talk I will give examples, with particular attention to sewing, boundary value problems on Riemann surfaces, and generalizations of the classical period maps.
