Hecke relations and Galois symmetries in Rational Conformal Field Theories and Modular Tensor Categories

Exceptional Seminar Jeff Harvey (The University of Chicago)

11:30 QMW
room 610

I will discuss some old and new relations between the characters, modular data and braiding and fusing matrices of rational conformal field theories and their associated modular tensor categories. These relations involve concepts from number theory which I will explain in the talk.
