Vertex operators in mathematics and physics : proceedings of a conference, November 1017, 1983 by

James Lepowsky t The search for symmetry in nature has for a long time provided representation theory with perhaps its chief motivation. According to the standard approach of Lie theory, one looks for infinitesimal symmetry  Lie algebras of operators or concrete realizations of abstract Lie algebras. A central theme in this volume is the construction of affine Lie algebras using formal differential operators called vertex operators, which originally appeared in the dualstring theory. Since the precise description of vertex operators, in both mathematical and physical settings, requires a fair amount of notation, we do not attempt it in this introduction. Instead we refer the reader to the papers of Mandelstam, GoddardOlive, LepowskyWilson and FrenkelLepowskyMeurman. We have tried to maintain consistency of terminology and to some extent notation in the articles herein. To help the reader we shall review some of the terminology. We also thought it might be useful to supplement an earlier fairly detailed exposition of ours [37] with a brief historical account of vertex operators in mathematics and their connection with affine algebras. Since we were involved in the development of the subject, the reader should be advised that what follows reflects our own understanding. For another view, see [29].1 t Partially supported by the National Science Foundation through the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute and NSF Grant MCS 8301664. 1 We would like to thank Igor Frenkel for his valuable comments on the first draft of this introduction

"Stanley Mandelstam was one of the most influential and respected particle theorists of the last half of the 20th century. Coming as a young chemical engineer from South Africa to study theoretical physics in England, he quickly became a leading physicist in his field. With his deep understanding of quantum field theory, he pioneered the development of the theory of the analytic Smatrix. His work led to the discovery of dual resonance models, which in turn became superstring theory. He was a leader in these developments, devoting much of his later years to the proof that the theory is perturbatively finite. Stanley Mandelstam was a very modest and friendly man impressing everyone with his sharp intellect as well as his humanity. This volume contains essays written by many of his friends and students including both detailed reports on his scientific achievements as well as personal reminiscences. Also collected in this volume are some selected reprints of Mandelstam's early seminal papers"
