The string group and vertex algebras

Presented by: 
Christian Voigt University of Glasgow
Date: 
Thursday 15th June 2017 - 13:30 to 14:30
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
I will describe a categorification of complex Clifford algebras arising from certain categories of twisted modules over fermionic vertex superalgebras. Along the way I'll discuss some background from the theory of unitary vertex algebras, and how the String 2-group fits into the picture.
