We study connections between the ring of symmetric functions and the characters of irreducible finite-dimensional representations of quantum affine algebras. We study two families of representations of the symplectic and orthogonal Lie algebras. One is defined via combinatorial properties and is easy to calculate; the other is closely related to the q = 1(More)
We define an action of the braid group of a simple Lie algebra on the space of imaginary roots in the corresponding quantum affine algebra. We then use this action to determine an explicit condition for a tensor product of arbitrary irreducible finite–dimensional representations is cyclic. This allows us to determine the set of points at which the(More)
The notion of a Weyl module, previously defined for the untwisted affine algebras, is extended here to the twisted affine algebras. We describe an identification of the Weyl modules for the twisted affine algebras with suitably chosen Weyl modules for the untwisted affine algebras. This identification allows us to use known results in the untwisted case to(More)
Introduction In this paper we study the category C of finite–dimensional representations of affine Lie algebras. The irreducible objects of this category were classified and described explicitly in [2],[4]. It was known however that C was not semisimple. In such a case a natural problem is to describe the blocks of the category. The blocks of an abelian(More)
