OASW02 - Subfactors, higher geometry, higher twists and almost Calabi-Yau algebras Vertex operator algebras occur naturally as mathematically well tractable ingredients to conformal field theories (CFTs), capturing in general only a small part of the structure of the latter. The talk will highlight a few examples for which this procedure yields a natural route from Calabi-Yau geometries to vertex operator algebras. Moreover, we will discuss a new technique, developed in joint work with Anne Taormina, which transforms certain CFTs into vertex operator algebras and their admissible modules, thus capturing a major part of the structure of the CFT in terms of a vertex operator algebra.
