Unitary representations of the Virasoro and super-Virasoro algebras

- P. Goddard, A. Kent, D. Olive
- Mathematics
- 1986

It is shown that a method previously given for constructing representations of the Virasoro algebra out of representations of affine Kac-Moody algebras yields the full discrete series of highest… Expand

Virasoro algebras and coset space models

- P. Goodard, A. Kent, D. Olive
- Physics
- 28 February 1985

Abstract A previous construction of unitary representations of the Virasoro algebra is extended and interpreted physically in terms of a coset space quark model. The quaternionic projective spaces… Expand

On the consistent histories approach to quantum mechanics

- Fay Dowker, A. Kent
- Mathematics, Physics

One world versus many: the inadequacy of Everettian accounts of evolution, probability, and scientific confirmation

- A. Kent
- Physics, Mathematics
- 5 May 2009

There is a compelling intellectual case for exploring whether purely unitary quantum theory defines a sensible and scientifically adequate theory, as Everett originally proposed. Many different and… Expand
