In our paper [KR] we began a systematic study of representations of the universal central extension of the Lie algebra of differential operators on the circle. This study was continued in the paper [FKRW] in the framework of vertex algebra theory. It was shown that the associated to simple vertex algebraW1+∞,N with positive integral central chargeN is isomorphic to the classical vertex algebraW(glN), which led to a classification of modules overW1+∞,N. In the present paper we study the remaing… 
Invariant theory and the W 1 + ∞ algebra with negative integral central charge
