Title: VOAs: From representation theory to physics
Abstract: Vertex operator algebras (VOAs) often serve as a bridge connecting interesting problems. I aim to explain such an exciting connection to non-experts. The problem are representations of affine Lie superalgebras and related W-superalgebras and their connection to geometry and physics.
I will introduce VOA-analogues of the space of functions on a compact Lie group. Then I will explain what these VOAs tell us about equivalences of representation categories of different VOAs and how they are motivated from dualities in four-dimensional gauge theories.
