 Monstrous moonshine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, monstrous moonshine is a term devised by John Horton Conway and Simon P. Norton in 1979, used to describe the (then totally unexpected) connection between the monster group M and modular functions (particularly, the j function).
It turns out that lying behind monstrous moonshine is a certain string theory having the Monster group as symmetries; the conjectures made by Conway and Norton were proven by Richard Ewen Borcherds in 1992 using the no-ghost theorem from string theory and the theory of vertex operator algebras and generalized Kac-Moody superalgebras.
A vertex algebra V is constructed that is a graded algebra affording the moonshine representations on M, and it is verified that the monster module has a vertex algebra structure invariant under the action of M.

And yet suppose that, as more and more statistics were gathered, the results were to become irrefutable, and that it had to be admitted that the phases of the Moon had important effects on human behavior.
In the preindustrial era, people who had to travel by night would prefer, if they could, to travel during the week of the full Moon so that there would be as much light as possible (assuming the absence of clouds).

 COLLAGE Moonshine reviews and MP3
MOONSHINE, a 1994 release from Polish group Collage, serves up a generous slice of latter-day symphonic progressive rock (or "neo-prog") that, while puffed up with grandiose bombast, is less than fully satisfying in terms of musical "meat" or originality.
Moonshine seems to have a lack of direction, with keyboard and guitar solos thrown in aimlessly and without any sort of lead in.
Moonshine seems too bright” Moonshine does have some great moments and without a doubt is Poland’s most talented Neo Progressive rock band to have emerged.
