Conformal Field Theory

This webpage is dedicated to curating papers on (the mathematical aspect of) conformal field theory (CFT). For Lie algebra and its representation, visit here. I will only add the papers that are relevant to me.

- Formally introduced in 1984 by Belavin, Polyakov, and Zamolodchikov (BPZ)

  • Virasoro modes $L_n$ have $L^{\dagger}_n = L_{-n}$ which is true in most CFTs. For eg. the free boson. YB stated on page 202 to be a general result. $\mid$ Note
