In this article, we provide a detailed construction and analysis of the mathematical conformal field theory of the free fermion, defined in the sense of Graeme Segal. We verify directly that the operators assigned to disks with two disks removed correspond to vertex operators, and use this to deduce analytic properties of the vertex operators. One of the main tools used in the construction is the Cauchy transform for Riemann surfaces, for which we establish several properties analogous to those… 
Two-dimensional perturbative scalar QFT and Atiyah-Segal gluing
We study the perturbative quantization of 2-dimensional massive scalar field theory with polynomial (or power series) potential on manifolds with boundary. We prove that it fits into the functorial
Convergence of Sewing Conformal Blocks
In recent work, Damiolini-Gibney-Tarasca showed that for a $C_2$-cofinite rational CFT-type vertex operator algebra $\mathbb V$, sheaves of conformal blocks are locally free and satisfy the
Fusion and positivity in chiral conformal field theory
Conformal nets and vertex operator algebras are axiomatizations of two-dimensional chiral conformal field theories, both of which have had a significant impact on related mathematical areas of study.

We present recent progress in theory of local conformal nets which is an operator algebraic approach to study chiral conformal field theory. We emphasize representation theoretic aspects and
The Spinor Bundle on Loop Space and its Fusion product
Given a manifold with a string structure, we construct a spinor bundle on its loop space. Our construction is in analogy with the usual construction of a spinor bundle on a spin manifold, but
Singular Values of Weighted Composition Operators and Second Quantization
We study a semigroup of weighted composition operators on the Hardy space of the disk $H^2(\mathbb{D})$, and more generally on the Hardy space $H^2(U)$ attached to a simply connected domain $U$ with


Construction of the unitary free fermion Segal conformal field theory
Author(s): Tener, James Elliot | Advisor(s): Jones, Vaughan F. R. | Abstract: This thesis is primarily concerned with the construction and analysis of free fermion Segal CFTs in arbitrary genus, with
Riemann surfaces with boundaries and the theory of vertex operator algebras
The connection between Riemann surfaces with boundaries and the theory of vertex operator algebras is discussed in the framework of conformal field theories defined by Kontsevich and Segal and in the

Geometry and Quantum Field Theory (PDF)
Geometry and Quantum Field Theory, designed for mathematicians, is a rigorous introduction to perturbative quantum field theory, using the language of functional integrals. It covers the basics of
Unitary representations of some infinite dimensional groups
We construct projective unitary representations of (a) Map(S1;G), the group of smooth maps from the circle into a compact Lie groupG, and (b) the group of diffeomorphisms of the circle. We show that
From Vertex Operator Algebras to Conformal Nets and Back
We consider unitary simple vertex operator algebras whose vertex operators satisfy certain energy bounds and a strong form of locality and call them strongly local. We present a general procedure
