摘 要: The theory of vertex operator algebras (VOAs) has developed quite rapidly since its inception not too long ago. Its importance reaches many areas of mathematics and physics. We will discuss some of the main motivations behind the theory, give the definition of a VOA and the notion of its modules, and visit a few concrete examples. These short discussions are meant as a modest and friendly introduction to vertex operator algebras.
