Raiten, Eric J. (1991) Applications of current algebra in conformal field theory. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechTHESIS:04112011-105355285
In this work, two topics concerning the interplay between current algebra and conformal symmetry in two dimensions are discussed. The construction of a conformal algebra from a current algebra, the Virasoro Master Equation, is presented with analytic and perturbative solutions. Second, N = 2 superconformal models based on supersymmetric current algebras with c > 3 are coupled to two dimensional topological gravity.
