Date & time: Friday, 01 October 2021 at 11:00AM - 12:00PM
Abstract A program to construct weakly and full conformal field theories in the sense of Segal using the representation theory of vertex operator algebras was started more than 30 years ago. After more than 30 years, major progresses have been made and many problems in this program have been solved. In this talk, I will review the history of and the major progresses in this program and will also discuss the current status of this program.
