We study the properties of shifted vertex operator algebras, which are vertex algebras derived from a given theory by shifting the conformal vector. In this way, we are able to exhibit large numbers of vertex operator algebras which are regular (rational and $C_2$-cofinite) and yet are pathological in one way or another. 

Lattice Subalgebras of Strongly Regular Vertex Operator Algebras

We prove a sharpened version of a conjecture of Dong–Mason about lattice subalgebras of a strongly regular vertex operator algebra V, and give some applications. These include the existence of a

71 holomorphic vertex operator algebras of central charge 24

In this article, we give a survey on the recent progress towards the classification of strongly regular holomorphic vertex operator algebras of central charge 24. In particular, we review the

Torus n-Point Functions for R-graded Vertex Operator Superalgebras and Continuous

We consider genus one n-point functions for a vertex operator superalgebra with a real grading. We compute all n-point functions for rank one and rank two fermion vertex operator superalgebras. In

Jacobi trace functions in the theory of vertex operator algebras

We describe a type of n-point function associated to strongly regular vertex operator algebras V and their irreducible modules. Transformation laws with respect to the Jacobi group are developed for

A Cyclic Orbifold Theory for Holomorphic Vertex Operator Algebras and Applications

In this thesis we develop an orbifold theory for a finite, cyclic group $G$ acting on a suitably regular, holomorphic vertex operator algebra $V$. To this end we describe the fusion algebra of the

Integrability of C2-cofinite vertex operator algebras

The following integrability theorem for vertex operator algebras V satisfying some finiteness conditions (C2-cofinite and CFT-type) is proved: the vertex operator subalgebra generated by a simple Lie

On rationality of C-graded vertex algebras and applications to Weyl vertex algebras under conformal flow

Using the Zhu algebra for a certain category of [Formula: see text]-graded vertex algebras V, we prove that if V is finitely Ω-generated and satisfies suitable grading conditions, then V is rational,

Character vectors of strongly regular vertex operator algebras

We summarize interactions between vertex operator algebras and number theory through the lens of Zhu theory. The paper begins by recalling basic facts on vertex operator algebras (VOAs) and modular

Rational vertex operator algebras and the effective central charge

We establish that the Lie algebra of weight 1 states in a (strongly) rational vertex operator algebra is reductive, and that its Lie rank 1 is bounded above by the effective central charge c~. We

This paper gives an analogue of Ag(V) theory for a vertex operator superalgebra V and an automorphism g of finite order. The relation between the g-twisted V-modules and Ag(V)-modules is established.

Abstract We classify all the Heisenberg and conformal vectors and we determine the full automorphism group of the free bosonic vertex algebra without gradation. To describe it we introduce a notion
