Since conformal field theory is at the heart of most of my research projects, the apparent lack of mathematical literature on the subject is problematic. The various approaches to conformal field theory on the market are either not accepted as mathematically sound theories, or their applications in string theory have not been successful, so far. I have therefore developed an axiomatic formulation of conformal field theory, to be presented in a book, which is now close to completion. I have a preliminary contract for publication of this book in the AMS-Series Graduate Studies in Mathematics. Summaries of my approach have already been published:
