I will present interactions among 2-dimensional conformal field theory, which is a kind of quantum field theory in physics, theory of operator algebras and the Moonshine conjecture which predicted mysterious relations between the finite simple group Monster and the elliptic modular function. I will emphasize representation theoretic aspects and do not assume anyknowledge of these theories.
