I am reading the paper "Unitary Representations of the Virasoro and Super-Virasoro Algebras" by Goddard, Kent, Olive. In many places, the authors claim results without any justification, or with obscure justifications. Is there a textbook or article which summarized and/or digested the contents of this paper?
