Vertex Algebras and Costello-Gwilliam Factorization Algebras

  title={Vertex Algebras and Costello-Gwilliam Factorization Algebras},
  author={Daniel Bruegmann},
Vertex algebras and factorization algebras are two approaches to chiral conformal field theory. The subject of vertex algebras is well-developed. Some aspects of it have been reformulated in terms of the geometry of C, the plane of complex numbers, or other Riemann surfaces. Factorization algebras as developed by Costello and Gwilliam [3] are a more general approach to quantum field theory which applies to all kinds of geometries, including higher dimensional manifolds. This article compares… 
Quantizing local holomorphic field theories on twistor space
This paper studies a class of four-dimensional quantum field theories which arise by quantizing local holomorphic field theories on twistor space. These theories have some remarkable properties: in
Snowmass White Paper: The Quest to Define QFT
This article provides a review of the literature on rigorous definitions and constructions in Quantum Field Theory, spanning the period of seven decades. Comparing with the ideas and constructions


The Virasoro vertex algebra and factorization algebras on Riemann surfaces
This paper focuses on the connection of holomorphic two-dimensional factorization algebras and vertex algebras which has been made precise in the forthcoming book of Costello–Gwilliam. We provide a
Two-Dimensional Conformal Geometry and Vertex Operator Algebras
The focus of this volume is to formulate and prove one main theorem, the equivalance between the algebraic and geometric formulations of the notion of vertex operator algebra. The author introduces a
A Functional-Analytic Theory¶of Vertex (Operator) Algebras, I
Abstract:This paper is the first in a series of papers developing a functional-analytic theory of vertex (operator) algebras and their representations. For an arbitrary ℤ-graded finitely-generated
A Functional-Analytic Theory of Vertex (Operator) Algebras, II
AbstractFor a finitely-generated vertex operator algebra V of central charge cℂ, a locally convex topological completion HV is constructed. We construct on HV a structure of an algebra over the
Analytic cyclic cohomology
We prove excision in entire and periodic cyclic cohomology and construct a Chern-Connes character for Fredholm modules over a C*-algebra without summability restrictions, taking values in a variant
Geometric Vertex Algebras.
Geometric vertex algebras are a simplified version of Huang's geometric vertex operator algebras. We give a self-contained account of the equivalence of geometric vertex algebras with Z-graded vertex
Analytic Functions of Several Complex Variables
The Jacobi inversion theorem leads to functions of several variables with many periods. So, we are led to the problem of developing a theory of them which is analogous to the theory of elliptic
