As part of the full-year 2000-2001 program on Operator Algebras, MSRI will host a one-week workshop on Subfactors and Algebraic Aspects of Quantum Field Theory, December 4-8, 2000. These two areas have had a strong interaction in the last two decades, leading to exciting and closely related mathematics.
The Subfactor section of the workshop will discuss the latest developments of the theory, covering both the combinatorial and analytical aspects.
Probable participants include: M. Asaeda, T. Banica, D. Bisch, D. Evans, F. Goodman, U. Haagerup, M. Izumi, V.F.R. Jones, Y. Kawahigashi, A. Ocneanu, M. Pimsner, S. Popa, N. Sato, V.S. Sunder, Y. Ueda, H. Wenzl
The section on Algebraic Aspects of QFT will attempt to cover several topics that have recently been linked with Operator Algebras. These include conformal field theory and vertex algebras, superselection sectors, invariants of links and 3-manifolds, the Hopf algebra structure of renormalization. Probable participants include: [D. Bar-Natan], R. Borcherds, S. Doplicher, [V. Drinfeld], B. Feigin, E. Frenkel, P. Goddard, [V. Kac], D. Kreimer, R. Lawrence, R. Longo, L. Rozansky, A. Tsuchiya, [V. Turaev], A. Wassermann, F. Xu, [D. Zagier].
