Affine Kac-Moody Algebras and the Wess-Zumino-Witten Model

Mark Walton

Published 1999-11-24Version 1

These lecture notes are a brief introduction to Wess-Zumino-Witten models, and their current algebras, the affine Kac-Moody algebras. After reviewing the general background, we focus on the application of representation theory to the computation of 3-point functions and fusion rules.
