We prove the equivalence between certain fermionic and bosonic theories in two spacetime dimensions. The theories have fields of arbitrary spin on compact surfaces with any number of handles. Global considerations require that we add new topological terms to the bosonic action. The proof that our prescription is correct relies on methods of complex algebraic geometry. 
Precise Constants in Bosonization Formulas on Riemann Surfaces. I
A computation of the constant appearing in the spin-1 bosonization formula is given. This constant relates Faltings’ delta invariant to the zeta-regularized determinant of the Laplace operator with
Geometric realization of conformal field theory on Riemann surfaces
Conformal field theory on a family of Riemann surfaces is formulated. We derive equations of motion of vacua which are parametrized by moduli of Riemann surfaces and show that these vacua are
On coalescence of fermions on Riemann surfaces
We consider coalescing fermions on a Riemann surface and derive generalized determinant formulae, complementing some results of Constantinescu (1995 Lett. Math. Phys. 33 195-206). Possible
Light-cone gauge strings on higher genus Riemann surfaces in noncritical dimensions
It is possible to formulate light-cone gauge string field theory in noncritical dimensions. Such a theory corresponds to conformal gauge worldsheet theory with nonstandard longitudinal part. We study

We extend an existing Bose-Fermi equivalence formula to two-dimensional Euclidean space-times with arbitrary compact topology. The result relates the nonchiral Dirac partition function to that of a
Operator formalism for free fermions on general Riemann surfaces is developed based on the Sato theory of the Kadomtsev-Petviashvilli hierarchy. Moduli spaces of various genuses are included in
Theta functions, modular invariance, and strings
We use Quillen's theorem and algebraic geometry to investigate the modular transformation properties of some quantities of interest in string theory. In particular, we show that the spin structure
