  • We identify the trace, or 0th Hochschild homology, of type ADE categorified quantum groups with the corresponding current algebra of the same type. To prove this, we show that 2-representations defined using categories of modules over cyclotomic (or deformed cyclotomic) quotients of KLR-algebras correspond to local (or global) Weyl modules. We also investigate the implications for centers of categories in 2-representations of categorified quantum groups.
