Double affine Lie algebras and finite groups

We introduce and begin to study Lie theoretical analogs of symplectic reflection algebras for a finite cyclic group, which we call "cyclic double affine Lie algebra". We focus on type A : in the


Suppose a finite group acts on a scheme X and a finite-dimensional Lie algebra g. The associated equivariant map algebra is the Lie algebra of equivariant regular maps from X to g. The irreducible

Conjugacy theorems for loop reductive group schemes and Lie algebras

The conjugacy of split Cartan subalgebras in the finite-dimensional simple case (Chevalley) and in the symmetrizable Kac–Moody case (Peterson–Kac) are fundamental results of the theory of Lie

Vertex Algebras and Coordinate Rings of Semi-infinite Flags

The direct sum of irreducible level one integrable representations of affine Kac-Moody Lie algebra of (affine) type ADE carries a structure of P/Q-graded vertex operator algebra. There exists a

The Semi-Infinite Cohomology of Affine Lie Algebras

Abstract:We study the semi-infinite or BRST cohomology of affine Lie algebras in detail. This cohomology is relevant in the BRST approach to gauged WZNW models. Our main result is to prove necessary

Formal Hecke algebras and algebraic oriented cohomology theories

In the present paper, we generalize the construction of the nil Hecke ring of Kostant–Kumar to the context of an arbitrary formal group law, in particular, to an arbitrary algebraic oriented

An overview of generalised Kac-Moody algebras on compact real manifolds

Realizations of the Witt and Virasoro Algebras and Integrable Equations

In this paper we study realizations of infinite-dimensional Witt and Virasoro algebras. We obtain a complete description of realizations of the Witt algebra by Lie vector fields of first-order

Invariants of Automorphic Lie Algebras

Automorphic Lie Algebras arise in the context of reduction groups introduced in the late 1970s [35] in the field of integrable systems. They are subalgebras of Lie algebras over a ring of rational
