# Algorithms for affine Kac-Moody algebras

@article{Gannon2001AlgorithmsFA, title={Algorithms for affine Kac-Moody algebras}, author={Terry Gannon}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2001} }

Weyl groups are ubiquitous, and efficient algorithms for them -- especially for the exceptional algebras -- are clearly desirable. In this paper we provide several of these, addressing practical concerns arising naturally for instance in computational aspects of the study of affine algebras or Wess-Zumino-Witten conformal field theories. We also discuss the efficiency and numerical accuracy of these algorithms.
