Tau-functions as highest weight vectors for W 1 + ∞ algebra


For each r = (r1, r2, . . . , rN ) ∈ C N we construct a highest weight module Mr of the Lie algebra W1+∞. The highest weight vectors are specific tau-functions of the N -th Gelfand–Dickey hierarchy. We show that these modules are quasifinite and we give a complete description of the reducible ones together with a formula for the singular vectors. hep-th… (More)
