OASW03 - Subfactors, K-theory and conformal field theory

Logarithmic conformal field theory is a generalisation of ordinary conformal field theory that allows for logarithmic singularities in correlation functions. This implies the existence of reducible yet indecomposable modules on which the action of the Virasoro L_0 operator is not diagonalisable. In this talk I will recall some of what is known about rational conformal field theory and contrast it with what has been achieved so far in logarithmic conformal field theory.
