We extend the notion of a Kac–Moody algebra defined on the S1 circle to super Kac–Moody algebras defined on M × GN, M being a smooth closed compact manifold of dimension greater than one, and GN the… Expand

Introduction Notational conventions 1. Basic definitions 2. The invariant bilinear form and the generalized casimir operator 3. Integrable representations of Kac-Moody algebras and the weyl group 4.… Expand

We study theN-extended super-Kač-Moody algebras, i.e. extensions of the Lie algebra of the loop group over the super-circleAN. The extensions are characterized by 2-cocycles which are computed in… Expand

This book is mainly an exposition of the author's works and his joint works with his former students on explicit representations of finite-dimensional simple Lie algebras, related partial… Expand

We construct a Borcherds Kac-Moody (BKM) superalgebra on which the Conway group Co$_0$ acts faithfully. We show that the BKM algebra is generated by the BRST-closed states in a chiral superstring… Expand

Affine and loop algebras are analogous to local current algebras that occur in many physical field theories. Sugawara’s formulation of the chiral model is a particularly interesting case. If this… Expand
