Introduction to Vertex Algebras
Abstract
These lecture notes are intended to give a modest impulse to anyone willing to start or pursue a journey into the theory of Vertex Algebras by reading one of Kac's or LepowskyLi's books. Therefore, the primary goal is to provide required tools and help being acquainted with the machinery which the whole theory is based on. The exposition follows Kac's approach. Fundamental examples relevant in Theoretical Physics are also discussed. No particular prerequisites are assumed.
