### Some version of non-commutative Wick formula

Let $V$ be a vertex algebra. The traditional non-commutative Wick formula is a tool to calculate term like $[a_\lambda:bc:]$. However, I need to calculate terms of the form $[:ab:_\lambda c]$. I found ...

### What is the Zhu algebra of a vertex algebra "really"?

Given any vertex algebra $V$, you can give a particular quotient $\DeclareMathOperator\Zhu{Zhu}\Zhu V=V/\cdots$ an algebra structure using (a small amount of) the vertex algebra structure. As far as ...

### Zhu's induction for affine vertex algebras

For a vertex operator algebra $V$, Yongchang Zhu defined the so-called Zhu's algebra $\operatorname{Zhu}(V)$ of $V$. It's an associative algebra with underlying vector space being some quotient of $V$....

### Composition of operators in $w_{1+\infty}$ and $W_{1+\infty}$

The algebra $W_{1+\infty}$ can be defined as a central extension of the lie algebra $w_{1+\infty}$ (defined as being spanned by $\left(-\partial_z \right)^m z^{-k}$ ). See for example: Alexandrov, ... 335 views

### Examples of simple vertex operator algebras (VOAs)

A vertex operator algebra $V$ is called simple if $V$ is a simple $V$-module. What are some examples of simple VOAs? Are there lots of examples or this is a very strong condition? Is there a ... 166 views

### Vertex operator algebras and isomorphism of graded vector spaces

I have two vertex operator algebras and I would like to show that as graded vector spaces, they are isomorphic, rather than as algebras. The issue is I have not found anything in the literature that ...
