Reconstruction of a vertex algebra in higher dimensions from its one-dimensional restriction

  title={Reconstruction of a vertex algebra in higher dimensions from its one-dimensional restriction},
  author={Bojko Bakalov and Nikolay M. Nikolov},
. Vertex algebras in higher dimensions correspond to models of quantum field theory with global conformal invariance. Any vertex algebra in higher dimensions admits a restriction to a vertex algebra in any lower dimension, and in particular, to dimension one. In this paper, we find natural conditions under which the converse passage is possible. These conditions include a unitary action of the conformal Lie algebra with a positive energy, which is given by local endomorphisms and obeys certain… 




Vertex algebras in higher dimensions, introduced previously by Nikolov, provide an algebraic framework for investigating axiomatic quantum field theory with global conformal invariance. We develop

Vertex Algebras in Higher Dimensions and Globally Conformal Invariant Quantum Field Theory

We propose an extension of the definition of vertex algebras in arbitrary space–time dimensions together with their basic structure theory. A one–to–one correspondence between these vertex algebras

Superconformal vertex algebras in four dimensions

For vertex algebras with extended superconformal symmetry, in a canonical way, we construct superconformal vertex operators, i.e. fields on the superspace together with a state-field correspondence.

All unitary ray representations of the conformal group SU(2,2) with positive energy

AbstractWe find all those unitary irreducible representations of the ∞-sheeted covering group $$\tilde G$$ of the conformal group SU(2,2)/ℤ4 which have positive energyP0≧0. They are all finite

Vertex algebras

In this paper we try to define the higher dimensional analogues of vertex algebras. In other words we define algebras which we hope have the same relation to higher dimensional quantum field theories

Rationality of Conformally Invariant Local Correlation Functions on Compactified Minkowski Space

Abstract: Rationality of the Wightman functions is proven to follow from energy positivity, locality and a natural condition of global conformal invariance (GCI) in any number D of space-time
