Abstract

This project aims to expand our knowledge of logarithmic theories. Conformal field theory provides powerful methods for attacking problems in theoretical physics and furnishes beautiful connections between seemingly disparate branches of pure mathematics. Advancing these theories is crucial to progress in statistical mechanics, string theory and various mathematical disciplines. Expected outcomes include a detailed formalism for systematically and rigorously analysing a wide variety of logarithmic conformal field theories so as to facilitate applications.
