Vertex (operator) algebras are a fundamental class of algebraic structures that arose in mathematics and physics in the s. These algebras and their representations are deeply related to many directions in mathematics and physics, in particular, the representation theory of the Fischer–Griess Monster simple finite group and the connection with the phenomena of "Monstrous Moonshine" (cf.

The first chapter of Kac's "Vertex algebras for beginners" shows how the notion of vertex algebra arises naturally from Wightman axioms. $\endgroup$ – AFK Feb 1 '11 at 2 $\begingroup$ But is there a "fundamental example" that captures what a QFT is supposed is to do (or be).

The theory of vertex (operator) algebras has developed rapidly in the last few years. These rich algebraic struc tures provide the proper formulation for the moonshine moduleAuthor: Chongying Dong.

The original vertex operator algebras are equivalent to conformal vertex algebra in modern texts. We recommend E.

Abstract. In this paper we try to define the higher-dimensional analogues of vertex algebras. In other words we define algebras which we hope have the same relation to higher-dimensional quantum field theories that vertex algebras have to one-dimensional quantum field theories (or to “chiral halves” of two-dimensional conformai field theories).Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume Two-Dimensional Conformal Geometry and Vertex Operator Algebras.

The first part of the book presents a new mathematical theory of vertex operator algebras, the algebraic counterpart of two-dimensional holomorphic conformal quantum field theory.
