Representation Theory of the Virasoro Algebra

  • Malte Henkel
Part of the Texts and Monographs in Physics book series (TMP)


In this and the following chapters, we shall develop the necessary techniques for the explicit calculation of four-point correlation functions. The tools needed are the representation theory of the Virasoro algebra and the operator product algebra. These will be presented in the next two chapters. The first application of this will be to the Ising model in Chap. 6.
