@article{Das2022NewMC, title={New meromorphic CFTs from cosets}, author={Arpit Das and Chethan N. Gowdigere and Sunil Mukhi}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2022}, volume={2022} }

In recent years it has been understood that new rational CFTs can be discovered by applying the coset construction to meromorphic CFTs. Here we turn this approach around and show that the coset construction, together with the classification of meromorphic CFT with c ≤ 24, can be used to predict the existence of new meromorphic CFTs with c ≥ 32 whose Kac-Moody algebras are non-simply-laced and/or at levels greater than 1. This implies they are non-lattice theories. Using three-character coset…
