This paper is primarily intended as an introduction for mathematicians to some of the rich algebraic combinatorics arising in for instance conformal field theory (CFT). It tries to refine, modernise, and bridge the gap between papers [6] and [55]. Our paper is essentially self-contained, apart from some of the background motivation (Section 1) and examples (Section 3) which are included to give the reader a sense of the context. Detailed proofs will appear elsewhere. The theory is still a work… 
A pr 2 00 3 Classification of operator algebraic conformal field theories
We give an exposition on the current status of classification of operator algebraic conformal field theories. We explain roles of complete rationality and α-induction for nets of subfactors in such a
From modular invariants to graphs: the modular splitting method
We start with a given modular invariant of a two-dimensional conformal field theory (CFT) and present a general method for solving the Ocneanu modular splitting equation and then determine, in a
Classification of operator algebraic conformal field theories
We give an exposition on the current status of classification of operator algebraic conformal field theories. We explain roles of complete rationality and alpha-induction for nets of subfactors in
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
Hopf algebras and finite tensor categories in conformal field theory
In conformal field theory the understanding of correlation functions can be divided into two distinct conceptual levels: The analytic properties of the correlators endow the representation categories
Modular Invariants and Twisted Equivariant K-theory II: Dynkin diagram symmetries
The most basic structure of chiral conformal field theory (CFT) is the Verlinde ring. Freed-Hopkins-Teleman have expressed the Verlinde ring for the CFT's associated to loop groups, as twisted
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
Congruence property in conformal field theory
The congruence subgroup property is established for the modular representations associated to any modular tensor category. This result is used to prove that the kernel of the representation of the

Abstract: It is shown that for the modular representations associated to Rational Conformal Field Theories, the kernel is a congruence subgroup whose level equals the order of the Dehn-twist. An
