This monograph deals with two aspects of the theory of elliptic genus: its topological aspect involving elliptic functions, & its representation theoretic aspect involving vertex operator super-algebras. For the second aspect, elliptic genera are shown to have the structure of modules over certain vertex operator super-algebras. The vertex operators corresponding to parallel tensor fields on closed Riemannian Spin Kahler manifolds such as Riemannian tensors & Kahler forms are shown to give rise to Virasoro algebras & affine Lie algebras. This monograph is chiefly intended for topologists & it includes accounts on topics outside of topology such as vertex operator algebras.
