About the Authors
  • This volume covers the proceedings of an international conference held in Oxford in June 2002. In addition to articles arising from the conference, the book also contains the famous as-yet-unpublished article by Graeme Segal on the Definition of Conformal Field Theories. It is ideal as a view of the current state of the art and will appeal to established researchers as well as to novice graduate students.

    • Contains Segal's influential paper on The Definition of Conformal Field Theory published for the first time
    • Articles from contributors of the highest possible calibre
    • Truly interdisciplinary subject matter
