Product Description: The rapidly-evolving theory of vertex operator algebras provides deep insight into many important algebraic structures. Vertex operator algebras can be viewed as "complex analogues" of both Lie algebras and associative algebras. The monograph is written in a n accessible and self-contained manner, with detailed proofs and with many examples interwoven through the axiomatic treatment as motivation and applications...read more

Product Description: The affine Kac-Moody algebra $A_1^{(1)}$ has recently served as a source of new ideas in the representation theory of infinite-dimensional affine Lie algebras. In particular, several years ago it was discovered that $A_1^{(1)}$ and then a general class of affine Lie algebras could be constructed using operators related to the vertex operators of the physicists' string model...read more
