Monstrous Moonshine was extended in two complementary directions during the 1980s and 1990s, giving rise to Norton's Generalized Moonshine conjecture and Ryba's Modular Moonshine conjecture. Both conjectures have been unconditionally resolved in the last few years, so we describe some speculative conjectures that may extend and unify them. 
Snowmass White Paper: Moonshine
We present a brief overview of Moonshine with an emphasis on connections to physics. Moonshine collectively refers to a set of phenomena connecting group theory, analytic number theory, and vertex

Monstrous moonshine and monstrous Lie superalgebras
We prove Conway and Norton's moonshine conjectures for the infinite dimensional representation of the monster simple group constructed by Frenkel, Lepowsky and Meurman. To do this we use the no-ghost
Four self-dual integral forms of the moonshine module
We give four constructions of self-dual integral forms of the moonshine vertex operator algebra, each of which has symmetries given by the Fischer-Griess monster simple group. The existence of these
On the relationship between Monstrous Moonshine and the uniqueness of the Moonshine Module
We consider the relationship between the conjectured uniqueness of the Moonshine Module,, and Monstrous Moonshine, the genus zero property of the modular invariance group for each Monster group
Generalised Moonshine and Holomorphic Orbifolds
Generalised moonshine is reviewed from the point of view of holomorphic orbifolds, putting special emphasis on the role of the third cohomology group H^3(G, U(1)) in characterising consistent
Beauty and the beast: Superconformal symmetry in a monster module
Frenkel, Lepowsky, and Meurman have constructed a representation of the largest sporadic simple finite group, the Fischer-Griess monster, as the automorphism group of the operator product algebra of
The fake monster formal group
The main result of this paper is the construction of ``good'' integral forms for the universal enveloping algebras of the fake monster Lie algebra and the Virasoro algebra. As an application we
Generalized moonshine, II: Borcherds products
The goal of this paper is to construct infinite dimensional Lie algebras using infinite product identities, and to use these Lie algebras to reduce the generalized moonshine conjecture to a pair of
Generalized moonshine I: Genus-zero functions
We introduce a notion of Hecke-monicity for functions on certain moduli spaces associated to torsors of finite groups over elliptic curves, and show that it implies strong invariance properties under
BPS algebras, genus zero and the heterotic Monster
In this note, we expand on some technical issues raised in (Paquette et al 2016 Commun. Number Theory Phys. 10 433-526) by the authors, as well as providing a friendly introduction to and summary of
This work explores some connections between the elliptic cohomology of classifying spaces for finite groups, Virasoro equivariant bundles over their loop spaces and Moonshine for finite groups. Our
