## Mini-course: On the Hasse Principle for Divisibility in commutative algebraic groups

The Hasse Priciple is a fundamental topic in number theory. Anyway a complete proof is very seldom showed in undergraduate and graduate courses in number theory. We will decribe this classical result and prove it. After an overview of some long-established local-global principles, we will focus on the recent local-global question for divisibility in commutative algebraic group.

Let $k$ be a field. The collection of (isomorphism classes of) central division algebras over $k$ can be organized into an abelian group $\mathrm{Br}(k)$, called the Brauer group of $k$. In this series of talks, I'll describe some joint work with Mike Hopkins on a variant of the Brauer group which arises in algebraic topology, controlling the classification of certain cohomology theories known as Morava $K$-theories.

An axiom system for special quantum field theories was introduced over 25 years ago by Segal and Atiyah.
It has been much elaborated and developed, particularly in the topological case.  In these three lectures I will
discuss aspects of this mathematical theory and applications to problems in physics.

This is a tentative outline of my two lectures. No prior knowledge of vertex
rings is assumed, though the foundations will be covered only sketchily due to
time constraints. The main purpose of the lectures is to explain how modularity
enters into VOA theory, and to discuss an approach to the general problem of
modular-invariance in rational CFT based on a theory of vector-valued modular
forms, Fuchsian systems, and the Riemann-Hilbert problem.

## Mock theta functions and representation theory of affine Lie superalgebras and superconformal algebras

One of the beautiful properties in representation theory of ane Lie
algebras is the SL2pZq-invariance of the space of characters of integrable modules
discovered by Kac-Peterson in the early 1980's.
However, for ane Lie superalgebras, modular invariance had long been quite un-
clear except for only a few cases. Recently a remarkable breakthrough was brought
by Zwegers, who constructed a modular function from the supercharacter of the
ane slp2|1q-module of level 1 by adding non-holomorphic correction term, which
is called the "modi cation" procedure.

## Rogers-Ramanujan Identities and Moonshine

The Rogers-Ramanujan identities and Monstrous moonshine are among
the deepest results which occur at the interface of number theory and representation
theory. In these lectures the speaker will discuss these identities, and describe recent
work with Duncan, Griffin on Warnaar on their recent generalizations. This will include
a framework of Rogers-Ramanujan identities and singular moduli, and the theory of
umbral Moonshine.

I will review results of C. Hoyt and V. Serganova on the classi cation of Kac-Moody superalgebras.
In the supercase several Cartan matrices may determine the same superalgebra and our de nition
of Kac-Moody superalgebra is based on this fact. Surprisingly, all indecomposable Kac-Moody
superalgebras with isotropic roots are nite-dimensional or ane.

I will outline a proof of the Kac-Wakimoto character formula for some irreducible highest weight
modules over ane Lie superalgebras. This formula will be used in V. Kac's lectures.
