In the present research we studied mainly conformal filed theory and string theory related to geometry of moduli spaces. We obtained the following main results.
1. Construction of modular functor :
Taking the tensor product of non-abelian conformal field theory and a fractional power of abelian conformal field theory we constructed modularfunctor. This implies that we can construct new invariants of threefolds associated with complex simple Lie algebras.
2. Reconstruction of abelian conformal field theory and study of relationship with degeneration of curves and conformal blocks :
Using Heisenberg algebra and vertex operator algebra we reconstruct abelian conformal field theory. It is a similar construction of non-abelian conformal field theory. This clarifies relationship between degeneration of curves and abelian conformal blocks.
3. Study of KZB equation :
The differential equations describing projectively flat connection of conformal blocks over the moduli space of curves of genus greater than or equal to one is called KZB equation. In the present study we gave new simple description of KZB equation and studied its properties.
4. Study of the moduli spaces of abelian surfaces and K3 surfaces :
Katsura and van der Geer gave stratification of the moduli spaces of abelian surfaces and K3 surfaces using the Artin-Mazur formal groups. They gave explicit description of cycle classes of the loci corresponding to supersingular surfaces.
5. The spaces of initial conditions of Painleve equations :
Saito and his group gave new method of classification of Painleve equations by using the fact the spaces of initial conditions are rational surfaces.
6. Study of superstring theory :
Eguchi and his group studied Landau-Ginzburg models and found a new description of isolated singularities of type E.Saito and his group studied mirror symmetry of rational elliptic surfaces.
