Moonshine beyond the monster : the bridge connecting algebra, modular forms and physics [EBook] / Terry Gannon.
This book was originally published in 2006. Moonshine forms a way of explaining the mysterious connection between the monster finite group and modular functions from classical number theory. The theory has evolved to describe the relationship between finite groups, modular forms and vertex operator...
