Mathematical structures related to conformal field theories

Current Research

The aim of our research is to understand the mathematical structures related to 2-dimensional conformal field theories by looking at the system of axioms for vertex operator algebras. In particular, we have studied the properties of the finite groups which appear as the automorphism groups of vertex operator algebras, and found that there are certain numerical constraints for a vertex operator algebra on which the automorphism group acts in a fixed-point free manner up to some degree.
