Lie Group/Quantum Mathematics Seminar
Organizers Lisa Carbone, Yi-Zhi
Lepowsky and Siddhartha Sahi.
Time Friday, 12:00 to 1:00 pm.
Place Hill 705.
Starting from Spring, 2008, the
Lie Group Seminar and Quantum Mathematics Seminar
have merged together to a single seminar called the
Lie Group/Quantum Mathematics
Seminar. This seminar also has a page
Lie Groups Quantum Mathematics Seminar,
maintained by email@example.com.
For the Lie Group/Quantum Mathematics seminar in previous
semesters, see this
For talks in the Quantum Mathematics Seminar from Spring, 1998 to
Fall, 2007, see
For a few years before 2008, the Quantum Mathematics Seminar
shared the time and place with the Algebra Seminar.
For talks in both the Algebra and
Quantum Mathematics Seminars in these few semesters, see the page
the Previous Rutgers Algebra Seminars. For all the seminars and colloquia in the department, see
the Seminars and Colloquia page.

- Title On factorization and vector bundles of conformal blocks from vertex algebras
- Time/place 10/11/2019 (to be adjusted), Friday, 12:00 in Hill 705
- Abstract Modules over conformal vertex algebras
give rise to sheaves of coinvariants and conformal blocks on
moduli of stable pointed curves. We show that under certain
natural hypotheses, these sheaves satisfy the factorization
property, a reflection of their inherent combinatorial nature.
As an application, we prove they are vector bundles. These
provide a generalization of vector bundles defined by integrable
modules over affine Lie algebras at a fixed level. Satisfying
factorization is essential to a recursive formulation of
invariants, like ranks and Chern classes, and to produce new
constructions of rational conformal field theories.
