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 terms of the cyclic cohomology of the Grassmann algebra withN generators. The graded algebra of super-derivations compatible with each extension is determined. The casesN=1,2,3 are examined in detail and their relation with the Ademollo et al. superconformal algebras is discussed. We examine the… 
Double extensions of Lie algebras of Kac-Moody type and applications to some hamiltonian systems
We describe some Lie algebras of the Kac-Moody type, construct their double extensions, central and by derivations; we also construct the corresponding Lie groups in some cases. We study the case of

Construction ofN = 2 superconformal algebra from affine algebras with extended symmetry: I
The purpose of this Letter is to use the idea of the Sugawara-Kač-Todorov construction of theN = 0 andN = 1 superconformal algebras to construct a very simple free-field realization of theN = 2
Hochschild ( co ) homology of exterior algebras 1
The minimal projective bimodule resolutions of the exterior algebras are explicitly constructed. They are applied to calculate the Hochschild (co)homology of the exterior algebras. Thus the cyclic

Hochschild (Co)homology of Exterior Algebras
The minimal projective bimodule resolutions of the exterior algebras are explicitly constructed. They are applied to calculate the Hochschild (co)homology of the exterior algebras. Thus the cyclic
Von Neumann Algebras and Quantum Field Theory
Von Neumann algebras were originally designed as a framework for various subjects, a major motivation coming from quantum theory. Although von Nuemann algebras have since turned out to have
Berezin integration over anticommuting variables and cyclic cohomology
Berezin integration over fermionic degrees of freedom as a standard tool of quantum field theory is analysed from the viewpoint of noncommutative geometry. It is shown that among the variety of
An attempt to relate area-preserving diffeomorphisms to Kac-Moody algebras
In the same way as the Virasoro algebra can be connected with Kac-Moody algebras defined on the S1 circle, the area-preserving diffeomorphism algebra SDiff(ℳ), where ℳ is a two-dimensional surface,


Superconformal algebras and Clifford algebras
It is shown that superconformal Lie superalgebras contain a Clifford algebra structure. This is used to present a classification of these algebras under the following assumptions: only fields with
A künneth formula for the cyclic cohomology of ℤ/2-graded algebras
We define here Hochschild and cyclic (co)homology groups for Z/2-graded algebras. A definition of cyclic cohomology of such algebras over the complex numbers has already be given by Kastler [13-1 who

Superconformal current algebras and their unitary representations
AbstractA natural supersymmetric extension $$(\widehat{dG})_\kappa$$ is defined of the current (= affine Kac-Moody Lie) algebra $$\widehat{dG}$$ ; it corresponds to a superconformal and chiral
Non-abelian bosonization in two dimensions
A non-abelian generalization of the usual formulas for bosonization of fermions in 1+1 dimensions is presented. Any fermi theory in 1+1 dimensions is equivalent to a local bose theory which
