This long-awaited publication contains the results of the research of two distinguished professors from the University of Chicago, Alexander Beilinson and Fields Medalist, Vladimir Drinfeld. Years in the making, this is a one-of-a-kind book featuring previously unpublished material.
Chiral algebras form the primary algebraic structure of modern conformal field theory. Each chiral algebra lives on an algebraic curve, and in the special case where this curve is the affine line, chiral algebras invariant under translations are the same as well-known and widely used vertex algebras.
The exposition of this book covers the following topics:
The book is intended for researchers working in algebraic geometry and its applications to mathematical physics and representation theory.
Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic geometry and its applications to field theory.
"Without a doubt, it will become a standard reference on the subject."
-- Francisco J. Plaza Martin for Mathematical Reviews
