Abstract Novel infinite-dimensional algebras of the Virasoro/Kac-Moody/Floratos-Iliopoulos type are introduced, which involve trigonometric functions in their structure constants. They are then supersymmetrized, and relevant features of them are explored. An associated “lazy tongs” formulation of the SU (2) Kac-Moody algebra is also given. 
Infinite Dimensional Algebras and a Trigonometric Basis for the Classical Lie Algebras
This paper explores features of the infinite‐dimensional algebras that have been previously introduced. In particular, it is shown that the classical simple Lie algebras (AN, BN, CN, DN) may beExpand
Infinite-dimensional algebras, sine brackets, and SU(∞)
Abstract We investigate features of the infinite dimensional algebras we have previously introduced, which involve trigonometric functions in their structure constants. We find a realization for themExpand
Spin wedge and vertex operator representations of trigonometric algebras and their central extensions

K-graded algebras and vertex operators 1
We show that the "Constant r-term Krichever-Novikov-type algebras" called by Nuyts and platten are derivation algebras of certain k-graded commutative algebra parametrized by Laurent polynomials,Expand
Central and noncentral extensions of multi-graded Lie algebras
The author constructs noncentral extensions of the algebras of vector fields and gauge transformations in N-dimensional space. In one dimension they reduce to the ordinary central extensionsExpand
Uniqueness of the Virasoro algebra
It is shown that the structure constants of the Virasoro algebra are uniquely specified, up to rescaling of the generators, by the requirement that they be nonvanishing. Permitting some of theExpand
Generalized Clifford algebras and certain infinite dimensional Lie algebras
The embedding of certain infinite dimensional Lie algebras in generalized Clifford algobras C(N, p) is given. The correspondence between C(N,2) andgl(N, C) asN⇌∞ is pointed out.
Deformations and renormalisations ofW∞
Deformations of the infiniteN limit of the ZamolodchikovWN algebra are discussed. A recent one, due to Pope, Romans and Shen with non-zero central extensions for every conformal spin is shown to beExpand
Two-index generalizations of superconformal algebras
The superconformal algebras of Ademollo et al are generalized to a multi-index form. The structure obtained is similar to the Moyal bracket analogue of the Neveu - Schwarz algebra.
Vertex ring-indexed Lie algebras
Infinite-dimensional Lie algebras are introduced, which are only partially graded, and are specified by indices lying on cyclotomic rings. They may be thought of as generalizations of the OnsagerExpand


New realizations of the Virasoro algebra as membrane symmetries
Abstract We construct new realizations of the Virasoro algebra as subalgebras of area preserving diffeomorphisms of surfaces, which are the membrane symmetries. For the membrane torus, the SDiff(T 2Expand
A presentation for the Virasoro and super-Virasoro algebras
It is shown that the entire Virasoro, Ramond and Neveu-Schwarz algebras can each be constructed from a finite number of well-chosen generators satisfying a small number of conditions. The mostExpand
Central Extensions of Area Preserving Membrane Algebras
Abstract Understanding the symmetries of membrane and p-brane theories is important in order to grain some insight into their quantum structure. In the light-cone gauge there is a residual symmetryExpand
A note on the classical symmetries of the closed bosonic membranes
Abstract We determine the infinite-dimensional Lie algebras of the classical symmetries for the closed bosonic membranes. In the case of the torus membrane, T 2 =S 1 ×S 1 , we find a particularExpand
Nonlocal-symmetry Ward identities
We derive and discuss Ward identities associated with the nonlocal symmetry found in certain two-dimensional field theories. We show the identities are satisfied by the fermion propagator in theExpand
