Hopf action on vertex algebras
In present paper, some properties of Hopf action on vertex algebras will be given. We prove that V#H is an S-local vertex algebra but it is not a vertex algebra when V is an H-module vertex algebra.Expand
Chiral Homology of elliptic curves and Zhu's algebra
We study the chiral homology of elliptic curves with coefficients in a conformal vertex algebra. Our main result expresses the nodal curve limit of the first chiral homology group in terms of theExpand
Chiral Homology of Elliptic Curves and the Zhu Algebra
We study the chiral homology of elliptic curves with coefficients in a quasiconformal vertex algebra V. Our main result expresses the nodal curve limit of the first chiral homology group in terms ofExpand


Superconformal Vertex Algebras and Jacobi Forms
We discuss the appearance of Jacobi automorphic forms in the theory of superconformal vertex algebras, explaining it by way of supercurves and formal geometry. We touch on some related topics such asExpand
Vertex Operator Algebras and Associative Algebras
LetVbe a vertex operator algebra. We construct a sequence of associative algebrasAn(V) (n = 0, 1, 2,…) such thatAn(V) is a quotient ofAn + 1(V) and a pair of functors between the categoryExpand
Finite vs affine W-algebras
Abstract.In Section 1 we review various equivalent definitions of a vertex algebra V. The main novelty here is the definition in terms of an indefinite integral of the λ-bracket. In Section 2 weExpand
Modular invariance of characters of vertex operator algebras
In contrast with the finite dimensional case, one of the distinguished features in the theory of infinite dimensional Lie algebras is the modular invariance of the characters of certainExpand
$\phi$-coordinated modules for quantum vertex algebras and associative algebras
We study $\N$-graded $\phi$-coordinated modules for a general quantum vertex algebra $V$ of a certain type in terms of an associative algebra $\widetilde{A}(V)$ introduced by Y.-Z. Huang. Among theExpand
Differential equations, duality and modular invariance
We solve the problem of constructing all chiral genus-one correlation functions from chiral genus-zero correlation functions associated to a vertex operator algebra satisfying the followingExpand
