Quantization and chiralization

Colloque par Victor Kac (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

The four fundamental frameworks of physical theories are classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, classical field theory and quantum field theory. The related algebraic structures are Poisson algebras, associative algebras, Poisson vertex algebras and vertex algebras. I will discuss connections between these structures and explain the general picture on the example of W-algebras.
