Applications of Current Algebra in Conformal Field Theory
Abstract
In this work, two topics concerning the interplay between current algebra and conformal symmetry in two dimensions are discussed. The construction of a conformal algebra from a current algebra, the Virasoro master equation, is presented with analytic and perturbative solutions. Second, N = 2 superconformal models based on supersymmetric current algebras with c > 3 are coupled to two dimensional topological gravity.
