Summary: We consider the moonshine module vertex operator algebra constructed by Frenkel-Lepowsky-Meurman. This algebra has a unique irreducible module, the adjoint module, and any module is completely reducible. This proves the first part of the FLM’s conjecture on the moonshine module.
The detailed version of this paper will be submitted for publication elsewhere.
