We show that the conformal characters of various rational models of W-algebras can be already uniquely determined if one merely knows the central charge and the conformal dimensions. As a side result we develop several tools for studying representations of SL(2,Z) on spaces of modular functions. These methods, applied here only to certain rational conformal(More)
We describe the construction of vector valued modular forms transforming under a given congruence representation of the modular group SL(2, Z) in terms of theta series. We apply this general setup to obtain closed and easily computable formulas for conformal characters of rational models of W-algebras.
The Rankin convolution type Dirichlet series DF,G(s) of Siegel modular forms F and G of degree two, which was introduced by Kohnen and the second author, is computed numerically for various F and G. In particular, we prove that the series DF,G(s), which shares the same functional equation and analytic behavior with the spinor L-functions of eigenforms of(More)
We describe several infinite series of rational conformal field theories whose conformal characters are modular units, i.e. which are modular functions having no zeros or poles in the upper complex half plane, and which thus possess simple product expansions. We conjecture that certain infinite series of rational models of Casimir W-algebras always have(More)
We discuss the notion of Jacobi forms of degree one with matrix index, we state dimension formulas, give explicit examples, and indicate how closely their theory is connected to the theory of invariants of Weil representations associated to finite quadratic modules. 1 Jacobi forms of degree one Jacobi forms of degree one with matrix index F gained recent(More)

Preface These are the notes of a course on Lie algebras which I gave at the university of Bordeaux in spring 1997. The course was a so-called \Cours PostDEA", and as such had to be held within 12 hours. Even more challenging, no previous knowledge about Lie algebras should be assumed. Nevertheless, I had the goal to reach as peak of the course the character(More)
