Modular realizations of hyperbolic Weyl groups

We study the recently discovered isomorphisms between hyperbolic Weyl groups and modular groups over integer domains in normed division algebras. We show how to realize the group action via

On Fundamental Domains and Volumes of Hyperbolic Coxeter–Weyl Groups

We present a simple method for determining the shape of fundamental domains of generalized modular groups related to Weyl groups of hyperbolic Kac–Moody algebras. These domains are given as subsets

2-roots for simply laced Weyl groups

. We introduce and study “2-roots”, which are symmetrized tensor products of orthogonal roots of Kac–Moody algebras. We concentrate on the case where W is the Weyl group of a simply laced Y-shaped

Weyl groups of some hyperbolic Kac–Moody algebras

Simply-laced isomonodromy systems

A new class of isomonodromy equations will be introduced and shown to admit Kac–Moody Weyl group symmetries. This puts into a general context some results of Okamoto on the 4th, 5th and 6th Painlevé

Irregular connections and Kac-Moody root systems

Some moduli spaces of irregular connections on the trivial bundle over the Riemann sphere will be identified with Nakajima quiver varieties. In particular this enables us to associate a Kac-Moody

AUTOMORPHIC CORRECTION OF THE HYPERBOLIC KAC-MOODY ALGEBRA E10

In this paper, we study automorphic correction of the hyperbolic Kac-Moody algebra E10, using the Borcherds product for O(10, 2) attached to a weakly holomorphic modular form of weight −4 for SL2(Z).

Spin covers of maximal compact subgroups of Kac-Moody groups and of Weyl groups

The maximal compact subgroup SO(\(n\),ℝ) of SL(\(n\),ℝ) admits two double covers Spin (\(n\),ℝ) and O(\(n\),ℝ). In this thesis we show that in fact given any simply-laced diagram ∆, with associated

Finite Lorentz transformations, automorphisms, and division algebras

An explicit algebraic description of finite Lorentz transformations of vectors in ten‐dimensional Minkowski space is given by means of a parametrization in terms of the octonions. The possible

A DECOMPOSITION THEOREM FOR CAYLEY GRAPHS OF PICARD GROUP QUOTIENTS

The Picard group is defined as Γ = SL(2,Z[i]); the ring of 2× 2 matrices with Gaussian integer entries and determinant one. We consider certain graphs associated to quotients Γ/Γ(p) where p is a

Embeddings of Hyperbolic Kac–Moody Algebras into E10

We show that the rank 10 hyperbolic Kac–Moody algebra E10 contains every simply laced hyperbolic Kac–Moody algebra as a Lie subalgebra. Our method is based on an extension of earlier work of Feingold

Wall crossing, discrete attractor flow and Borcherds algebra

The appearance of a generalized (or Borcherds-) Kac-Moody algebra in the spectrum of BPS dyons in N=4, d=4 string theory is elucidated. From the low-energy supergravity analysis, we identify its root

Algebras, Lattices and Strings

A unified construction is given of various types of algebras, including finite dimensional Lie algebras, affine Kac-Moody algebras, Lorentzian algebras and extensions of these by Clifford algebras.

Quaternionic roots of SO(8), SO(9), F4 and the related Weyl groups

The root systems of SO(8), SO(9) and F4 are constructed by quaternions. Triality manifests itself as permutations of pure quaternion units e1, e2 and e3. It is shown that the automorphism groups of

? 1. The object of this paper is to develop some of the simpler properties of division algebras, that is to say, linear associative algebras in which division is possible by any element except zero.

Kac-Moody symmetries of ten-dimensional non-maximal supergravity theories

A description of the bosonic sector of ten-dimensional N = 1 supergravity as a non-linear realisation is given. We show that if a suitable extension of this theory were invariant under a Kac-Moody

Einstein billiards and overextensions of finite-dimensional simple Lie algebras

In recent papers, it has been shown that (i) the dynamics of theories involving gravity can be described, in the vicinity of a spacelike singularity, as a billiard motion in a region of hyperbolic

Symmetries, singularities and the de-emergence of space

Recent work has revealed intriguing connections between a Belinsky–Khalatnikov–Lifshitz-type analysis of spacelike singularities in general relativity and certain infinite-dimensional Lie algebras,
