Conformal field theory and Doplicher-Roberts reconstruction

  title={Conformal field theory and Doplicher-Roberts reconstruction},
  author={Michael Mueger},
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… 
Conformal Orbifold Theories and Braided Crossed G-Categories
The aim of the paper is twofold. First, we show that a quantum field theory A living on the line and having a group G of inner symmetries gives rise to a category G–Loc A of twisted representations.

Modular Categories and Orbifold Models
Abstract: In this paper, we try to answer the following question: given a modular tensor category ? with an action of a compact group G, is it possible to describe in a suitable sense the “quotient”
Category theory for conformal boundary conditions
We study properties of the category of modules of an algebra object A in a tensor category C. We show that the module category inherits various structures from C, provided that A is a Frobenius
Topological and conformal field theory as Frobenius algebras
Two-dimensional conformal field theory (CFT) can be defined through its correlation functions. These must satisfy certain consistency conditions which arise from the cutting of world sheets along
This is the first of two papers on the superselection sectors of the conformal model in the title, in a time zero formulation. A classification of the sectors of the net of observables as
Massless scalar free Field in 1+1 dimensions, II: Net Cohomology and Completeness of Superselection Sectors
As an application of Roberts' cohomology (net cohomology), we prove the completeness of the DHR sectors of the local observables of the model in the title, detailed in [8]. This result is achieved
Reconstruction and local extensions for twisted group doubles, and permutation orbifolds
We prove the first nontrivial reconstruction theorem for modular tensor categories: the category associated to any twisted Drinfeld double of any finite group, can be realised as the representation

Much of algebra and representation theory can be formulated in the general framework of tensor categories. The aim of this paper is to further develop this theory for braided tensor categories.


Multi-Interval Subfactors and Modularity¶of Representations in Conformal Field Theory
Abstract: We describe the structure of the inclusions of factors ?(E)⊂?(E′)′ associated with multi-intervals E⊂ℝ for a local irreducible net ? of von Neumann algebras on the real line satisfying the
Operator Algebras and Conformal Field Theory
We define and study two-dimensional, chiral conformal field theory by the methods of algebraic field theory. We start by characterizing the vacuum sectors of such theories and show that, under very
Quantum Double Actions on Operator Algebras and Orbifold Quantum Field Theories
Abstract:Starting from a local quantum field theory with an unbroken compact symmetry group G in 1+1-dimensional spacetime we construct disorder fields implementing gauge transformations on the
Galois Theory for Braided Tensor Categories and the Modular Closure
Abstract Given a braided tensor *-category C with conjugate (dual) objects and irreducible unit together with a full symmetric subcategory S we define a crossed product C ⋊ S . This construction
On braided tensor categories
We investigate invertible elements and gradings in braided tensor categories. This leads us to the definition of theta-, product-, subgrading and orbitcategories in order to construct new families of
Relativistic invariance and charge conjugation in quantum field theory
We prove that superselection sectors with finite statistics in the sense of Doplicher, Haag, and Roberts are automatically Poincaré covariant under natural conditions (e.g. split property for
On Soliton Automorphisms in Massive and Conformal Theories
For massive and conformal quantum field theories in 1+1 dimensions with a global gauge group we consider soliton automorphisms, viz. automorphisms of the quasilocal algebra which act like two
Superselection Structure of Massive Quantum Field Theories in 1+1 Dimensions
We show that a large class of massive quantum field theories in 1+1 dimensions, characterized by Haag duality and the split property for wedges, does not admit locally generated superselection
Topological gauge theories and group cohomology
We show that three dimensional Chern-Simons gauge theories with a compact gauge groupG (not necessarily connected or simply connected) can be classified by the integer cohomology groupH4(BG,Z). In a
