Title: Irregular Vertex Algebras

Blackboard: (Blackboard talk)
Abstract: Mainly motivated by Adley-Gaiotto-Tachikawa correspondence and their applications, irregular singularities in conformal field theory is investigated in mathematical physics.
We shall initiate an attempt to give a mathematical language of such theory by introducing the notions of coherent state modules and irregular vertex algebras.
In this talk, we shall explain the main ideas for the definitions and the fundamental properties by using the simplest examples.
This talk is based on a joint work with Akishi Ikeda at Osaka university.
