Abstract: Non-rational logarithmic conformal field theories are a generalizations of the well-known family of rational theories. Together with David Ridout, we have developed a rather general procedure to study such theories, especially there seems to be a working Verlinde formula. I would like to illustrate our ideas in the non-logarithmic example of the free boson, before turning to the logarithmic singlet theory at central charge minus two.
