Liouville theory and elliptic genera.

Taormina, A. (2009) 'Liouville theory and elliptic genera.', Progress of theoretical physics supplement., 177 (Supplement 1). pp. 203-217.

Abstract

The structure and modular properties of N = 4 superconformal characters are reviewed and exploited, in an attempt to construct elliptic genera-like functions by decompactifying K3. The construction is tested against expressions obtained in the context of strings propagating in background ALE spaces of type AN-1, using the underlying superconformal theory N = 2 minimal ⊗ N = 2 Liouville.
