Introduction to W-Algebras and Their Representation Theory

These are lecture notes from author’s mini-course on W-algebras during Session 1: “Vertex algebras, W-algebras, and application” of INdAM Intensive research period “Perspectives in Lie Theory”, at

W-algebras and Whittaker categories

Affine W-algebras are a somewhat complicated family of (topological) associative algebras associated with a semisimple Lie algebra, quantizing functions on the algebraic loop space of Kostant's

Annihilator varieties, adduced representations, Whittaker functionals, and rank for unitary representations of GL(n)

In this paper, we study irreducible unitary representations of $${GL_{n}(\mathbb{R})}$$ and prove a number of results. Our first result establishes a precise connection between the annihilator of a

Induction automorphe pour GL(n,C)

The Algebraic Integrability of the Quantum Toda Lattice and the Radon Transform

AbstractWe study the maximal commutative ring of partial differential operators which includes the quantum completely integrable system defined by the quantum Toda lattice. Kostant shows that the

On Whittaker modules over a class of algebras similar to U(sl2)

Motivated by the study of invariant rings of finite groups on the first Weyl algebras A1 and finding interesting families of new noetherian rings, a class of algebras similar to U(sl2) was introduced

Representation Theory of W-Algebras

This paper is the detailed version of math.QA/0403477 (T. Arakawa, Quantized Reductions and Irreducible Representations of W-Algebras) with extended results; We study the representation theory of

Representation theory and quantum inverse scattering method: the open Toda chain and the hyperbolic Sutherland model

Using the representation theory of Gl(N), we express the wave function of the GL(N,ℝ) Toda chain, which was recently obtained by two of us by the quantum inverse scattering method, in terms of



The Multiplicity One Theorem for GL n

The purpose of this paper is to establish preliminary results in the theory of representations in the direction of a systematic treatment of Hecke-theory for the group GLn. In particular, special

Finite- and infinite-dimensional representation of linear semisimple groups

Every representation in the nonunitary principal series of a noncompact connected real semisimple linear Lie group G with maximal compact subgroup K is shown to have a /C-finite cyclic vector. This

The Principal Three-Dimensional Subgroup and the Betti Numbers of a Complex Simple Lie Group

Let g be a complex simple Lie algebra and let G be the adjoint group of g. It is by now classical that the Poincare polynomial p G (t) of G factors into the form
