Objectives

The objectives of this workshop are firstly to honor Jurgen Fuchs who is turning 60 this year. The development of the mathematics of a full bulk conformal field theory are largely due to the insights of Jurgen Fuchs and his collaborators. Secondly, we would like to stengthen the ties between the mathematicians and physicists of the Theoretical Physics Institute at the University of Alberta and thirdly we would like to learn more about the research of different research groups in Western Canada. We intend to have introductory lectures on the topics of interest.
