OASW02 - Subfactors, higher geometry, higher twists and almost Calabi-Yau algebras

Vertex operator algebras occur naturally as mathematically
well tractable ingredients to conformal field theories (CFTs),
capturing in general only a small part of the structure of the
latter. The talk will highlight a few examples for which this
procedure yields a natural route from Calabi-Yau geometries
to vertex operator algebras. Moreover, we will discuss a
new technique, developed in joint work with Anne Taormina,
which transforms certain CFTs into vertex operator algebras
and their admissible modules, thus capturing a major part of the
structure of the CFT in terms of a vertex operator algebra.
