If you have a question about this talk, please contact Kevin Ralley. This talk explains one of the ways mathematicians pick up a physical theory and derive a fun, abstract, unrecognisable mathematical theory. We start by introducing 2D conformal field theory and how it is interpreted algebraically as a vertex algebra. Then, with a bit of algebra, we focus on a particular set of phenomena and generalise! I’ll explain how that helps people working in vertex algebras and how it allows us to get a handle on an entirely new class of algebras.
