Associative algebras and conformal field theories

Presented by: 
Hubert Saleur
Tuesday 13th June 2017 - 11:30 to 12:30
INI Seminar Room 1
I will review in this talk the relationships physicists observe/conjecture  between the associative algebras
(such as Temperley-Lieb) that appear in lattice models, and the  conformal field theories (CFT)  that  describe
their  continuum limits. I will then discuss in more detail a possible way to perform "fusion" for affine Temperley-Lieb
modules, and what this may have to do with Operator Product Expansion (OPE) in CFT.

We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
