Subfactors, conformal field theory and modular tensor categories Kawahigashi, Yasuyuki


We present an operator algebraic formulation of chiral conformal field theory and show how it is related to subfactor theory. Appearance of a modular tensor category through representation theory and the role of alpha-induction machinery are explained. We also exhibit the current status of the relations between our operator algebraic approach and the one based on vertex operator algebras.
