ABSTRACT  |  The purpose of this series of expository talks is to give an introduction to the theory of vertex operator algebras. We will start from basic definitions and simple examples. Then we will go through important examples such as ones associated to affine Kac-Moody algebras, chiral De Rham complex on complex manifolds, and W-algebras. We will discuss various functors from the category of vertex operator algebras to classical categories such as Lie algebras, associative algebras, and Poisson algebras. The connection of vertex algebras with conformal field theory is built by introducing the concept of conformal blocks and correlation functions, which will be discussed at the later part of the series. http://newton.kias.re.kr/~hkim/Algebra.html
