Reflections on $K3$ theories

This talk will give a lightning review on $K3$ theories, including some newer developments. In particular, we discuss a procedure recently devised in joint work with Anne Taormina in the context of Mathieu Moonshine. This procedure, which we call reflection, allows to transform certain superconformal field theories into super vertex operator algebras and their admissible modules, thus building a bridge between the two worlds.
