Abstract: 

Subfactor theory provides a framework for studying modular invariant partition functions in conformal field theory, and candidates for exotic modular tensor categories. I will describe work with Terry Gannon on the search for exotic theories beyond those from symmetries based on loop groupsĀ  and finite groups.
