# W-Algebras via Lax Type Operators

@article{Valeri2020WAlgebrasVL, title={W-Algebras via Lax Type Operators}, author={Daniele Valeri}, journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics}, year={2020}, pages={181-198} }

W-algebras are certain algebraic structures associated to a finite-dimensional Lie algebra Open image in new window and a nilpotent element f via Hamiltonian reduction. In this note we give a review of a recent approach to the study of (classical affine and quantum finite) W-algebras based on the notion of Lax type operators.
