There has been a great deal of interest in understanding the link between the axiomatic descriptions of conformal field theory given by vertex operator algebras and conformal nets. In recent work, we establish an equivalence between certain vertex algebras and conformally-symmetric quantum field theories in the sense of Wightman. In this talk I will give an overview of these results and discuss some of the difficulties that arise, the functional analytic properties of vertex algebras, and some of the ideas for future work in this area.

This is joint work with James Tener and Yoh Tanimoto.
