# 51 constructions of the Moonshine module

@article{Carnahan201751CO, title={51 constructions of the Moonshine module}, author={Scott Carnahan}, journal={arXiv: Representation Theory}, year={2017} }

We show using Borcherds products that for any fixed-point free automorphism of the Leech lattice satisfying a "no massless states" condition, the corresponding cyclic orbifold of the Leech lattice vertex operator algebra is isomorphic to the Monster vertex operator algebra. This induces an "orbifold duality" bijection between algebraic conjugacy classes of fixed-point free automorphisms of the Leech lattice satisfying this condition and algebraic conjugacy classes of non-Fricke elements in the… Expand
