Moonshine Beyond the Monster PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Moonshine Beyond the Monster free pdf Moonshine forms a way of explaining the mysterious connection between the monster finite group and modular functions. The theory has evolved to describe the relationship between finite groups, modular forms and vertex operator algebras. Moonshine Beyond the Monster describes the general theory of Moonshine and its underlying concepts, emphasising the interconnections between modern mathematics and mathematical physics. Written in a clear and pedagogical style, this book will be ideal for graduate students and researchers working in areas such as conformal field theory, string theory, algebra, number theory, geometry, and functional analysis. Containing over a hundred exercises, it is suitable for use as a textbook for graduate courses on Moonshine and as a supplement for courses on conformal field theory and string theory.
