Book Description: The deep and relatively new field of vertex operator algebras is intimately related to a variety of areas in mathematics and physics: for example, the concepts of "monstrous moonshine," infinite-dimensional Lie theory, string theory, and conformal field theory.

This book introduces the reader to the fundamental theory of. We call this the twisted vertex operator associated with α. The term “twisted” refers to the fact that it is based on the twisted affine algebra h ˜ [− 1].

(In Chapter 4, we shall build “untwisted” vertex operators starting from the untwisted affine algebra h ˜.) The term “vertex operator” comes from physics. The deep and relatively new field of vertex operator algebras is intimately related to a variety of areas in mathematics and physics: for example, the concepts of "monstrous moonshine," infinite-dimensional Lie theory, string theory, and conformal field theory.

In mathematics, a vertex operator algebra (VOA) is an algebraic structure that plays an important role in two-dimensional conformal field theory and string addition to physical applications, vertex operator algebras have proven useful in purely mathematical contexts such as monstrous moonshine and the geometric Langlands correspondence.

The related notion of vertex algebra was. The paper describes the theory of the toroidal Lie algebra, i.e. the Lie algebra of polynomial maps of a complex torus ℂ××ℂ× into a finite-dimensional simple Lie algebra g.

We describe the universal central extension t of this algebra and give an abstract presentation for it in terms of generators and relations involving the extended Cartan matrix of g.

Using this presentation and. We introduce certain correlation functions (graded q-traces) associated to vertex operator algebras and superalgebras which we refer to as n-point naturally arise in the studies of representations of Lie algebras of differential operators on the circle (J.
