Fusion rules and modular transformations in 2D conformal field theory

- E. Verlinde
- Physics
- 21 March 1988

We study conformal field theories with a finite number of primary fields with respect to some chiral algebra. It is shown that the fusion rules are completely determined by the behavior of the… Expand

Matrix string theory

- R. Dijkgraaf, E. Verlinde, H. Verlinde
- Physics
- 4 March 1997

Via compactification on a circle, the matrix mode] of M-theory proposed by Banks et a]. suggests a concrete identification between the large N limit of two-dimensional N = 8 supersymmetric Yang-Mills… Expand

Elliptic Genera of Symmetric Products and Second Quantized Strings

- R. Dijkgraaf, G. Moore, E. Verlinde, H. Verlinde
- Mathematics, Physics
- 15 August 1996

Abstract: In this note we prove an identity that equates the elliptic genus partition function of a supersymmetric sigma model on the N-fold symmetric product of a manifold M to the partition… Expand

String Propagation in a Black Hole Geometry

- R. Dijkgraaf, E. Verlinde, H. Verlinde
- Physics
- 2 March 1992

Abstract We consider string theory in the background of the two-dimensional black hole as described by the SL(2, R )/U(1) coset theory recently untroduced by Witten. We study the spectrum of this… Expand

A Black Hole Farey Tail

- R. Dijkgraaf, J. Maldacena, G. Moore, E. Verlinde
- Physics
- 29 April 2000

We derive an exact expression for the Fourier coefficients of elliptic genera of Calabi-Yau manifolds. When applied to k-fold symmetric products of K3 surfaces the expression is well-suited to… Expand

Emergent Gravity and the Dark Universe

- E. Verlinde
- Physics
- 7 November 2016

Recent theoretical progress indicates that spacetime and gravity emerge together from the entanglement structure of an underlying microscopic theory. These ideas are best understood in Anti-de Sitter… Expand

Topological strings in d < 1

- R. Dijkgraaf, H. Verlinde, E. Verlinde
- Physics
- 18 March 1991

We calculate correlation functions in minimal topological field theories. These twisted versions of N = 2 minimal models have recently been proposed to describe d < 1 matrix models, once coupled to… Expand

On the Holographic Principle in a Radiation Dominated Universe

- E. Verlinde
- Physics
- 17 August 2000

The holographic principle is studied in the context of a $n+1$ dimensional radiation dominated closed Friedman-Robertson-Walker (FRW) universe. The radiation is represented by a conformal field… Expand

Counting Dyons in N =4 String Theory

- R. Dijkgraaf, E. Verlinde, H. Verlinde
- Physics
- 3 July 1996

Abstract We present a microscopic index formula for the degeneracy of dyons in four-dimensional N = 4 string theory. This counting formula is manifestly symmetric under the duality group, and its… Expand

The operator algebra of orbifold models

- R. Dijkgraaf, C. Vafa, E. Verlinde, H. Verlinde
- Mathematics
- 6 January 1989

We analyze the chiral properties of (orbifold) conformal field theories which are obtained from a given conformal field theory by modding out by a finite symmetry group. For a class of orbifolds, we… Expand
