Conformal field theory, operator algebras and vertex operator algebras

We have two mathematical axiomatizations of a chiral conformal field theory. One is a local conformal net, which is based on theory of operator algebras and the other is a vertex operator algebra, which is purely algebraic. We compare two theories and give a direct relation between them. We emphasize representation theoretic aspects.
