The worldsheet of the string theory, which consisting of 26 free scalar fields in Minkowski space, is two dimensional conformal field theory. If we denote the two dimension conformal field theory by elliptic curve and denote the partition function of string theory by modular form, then the relation between conformal field theory and the string theory can be represented as the Taniyama-Shimura conjecture. Moreover, it also can be generalized to the $F$-theory.
