Recent Developments in Moonshine (I)
Miranda Chih-Ning Cheng (Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics and Institute of Physics, University of Amsterdam)


The aim of the lecture series is to introduce the audience to recent developments in the study of moonshine phenomenon, which refers to a special relation between modular objects and finite groups. First I will introduce the necessary background knowledge on finite group representations, (mock) modular forms and conformal field theories. Second I will discuss the classical case of monstrous moonshine. Finally I will explain the recent developments including umbral moonshine and beyond.
