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.
Unitary vertex algebras and Wightman conformal field theories
We prove an equivalence between the following notions: (i) unitary Möbius vertex algebras, and (ii) Wightman conformal field theories on the circle (with finite-dimensional conformal weight spaces)
Representation theory in chiral conformal field theory: from fields to observables
This article develops new techniques for understanding the relationship between the three different mathematical formulations of two-dimensional chiral conformal field theory: conformal nets
Conformal field theory from lattice fermions
We provide a rigorous lattice approximation of conformal field theories given in terms of lattice fermions in 1+1-dimensions, focussing on free fermion models and WessZumino-Witten models. To this
Toward Entanglement Entropy with UV-Cutoff in Conformal Nets
We consider the entanglement entropy for a spacetime region and its spacelike complement in the framework of algebraic quantum field theory. For a Möbius covariant local net (a chiral component of a
On classification of extremal non-holomorphic conformal field theories
Rational chiral conformal field theories are organized according to their genus, which consists of a modular tensor category $\mathcal{C}$ and a central charge $c$. A long-term goal is to classify
Construction of the Unitary Free Fermion Segal CFT
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

    Integrability: From Statistical Systems to Gauge Theory
  • 2019
This is a review of two-dimensional conformal field theory including the Virasoro algebra, the bootstrap, and some of the relations to integrable models. An effort is made to develop the basic
Conformal Field Theories as Scaling Limit of Anyonic Chains
We provide a mathematical definition of a low energy scaling limit of a sequence of general non-relativistic quantum theories in any dimension, and apply our formalism to anyonic chains. We formulate
Classification of unitary vertex subalgebras and conformal subnets for rank-one lattice chiral CFT models
We provide a complete classification of unitary subalgebras of even rank-one lattice vertex operator algebras. As a consequence of the correspondence between vertex operator algebras and conformal

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

N =2 Superconformal Nets
We provide an Operator Algebraic approach to N = 2 chiral Conformal Field Theory and set up the Noncommutative Geometric framework. Compared to the N = 1 case, the structure here is much richer.
Structure and Classification of Superconformal Nets
Abstract.We study the general structure of Fermi conformal nets of von Neumann algebras on S1 and consider a class of topological representations, the general representations, that we characterize as
Classification of local conformal nets
We completely classify diffeomorphism covariant local nets of von Neumann algebras on the circle with central charge c less than 1. The irreducible ones are in bijective correspondence with the pairs
INTEGRATING UNITARY REPRESENTATIONS OF INFINITE-DIMENSIONAL LIE GROUPS
We show that in the presence of suitable commutator estimates, a projective unitary representation of the Lie algebra of a connected and simply connected Lie group G exponentiates to G. Our proof

We show that in the presence of suitable commutator estimates, a projective unitary representation of the Lie algebra of a connected and simply connected Lie group G exponentiates to G. Our proof
Conformal Covariance and the Split Property
We show that for a conformal local net of observables on the circle, the split property is automatic. Both full conformal covariance (i.e., diffeomorphism covariance) and the circle-setting play
