Title: Generalised Umbral Moonshine

Abstract

Umbral moonshine describes an unexpected relation between 23 finite groups arising from lattice symmetries and special mock modular forms. It includes the Mathieu moonshine as a special case and can itself be viewed as an example of the more general moonshine phenomenon which connects finite groups and distinguished modular objects. In this study we introduce the notion of generalized umbral moonshine, which includes the generalized Mathieu moonshine as a special case, and provide supporting data for it. A central role is played by the deformed Drinfel'd (or quantum) double of each umbral finite group G, specified by a cohomology class in H 3( G, U(1)). We conjecture that in each of the 23 cases there exists a rule to assign an infinite-dimensional module for the deformed Drinfel'd double of the umbral finite group underlying the mock modular forms of umbral moonshine and generalized umbral moonshine. We also discuss the possible origin of the generalized umbral moonshine.
