Moonshine : the first quarter century and beyond : proceedings of a workshop on the moonshine conjectures and vertex algebras [EBook] / edited by James Lepowsky, John McKay, Michael P. Tuite.
The theory of 'Monstrous Moonshine' has been a major development in mathematics since 1979. Beginning with remarkable conjectures relating finite group theory and number theory that stimulated an outpouring of new ideas, 'Monstrous Moonshine' deeply involves many different areas...
