# Conformal field theory and Doplicher-Roberts reconstruction

@inproceedings{Mueger2000ConformalFT, title={Conformal field theory and Doplicher-Roberts reconstruction}, author={Michael Mueger}, year={2000} }

After a brief review of recent rigorous results concerning the representation theory of rational chiral conformal field theories (RC- QFTs) we focus on pairs (A, F) of conformal field theories, where F has a finite group G of global symmetries and A is the fixpoint theory. The comparison of the representation categories of A and F is strongly intertwined with various issues related to braided tensor categories. We explain that, given the representation category of A, the representation category…
