EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This is the long awaited follow-up to Lie Algebras, Part I which covered a major part of the theory of Kac-Moody algebras, stressing primarily their mathematical structure. Part II deals mainly with the representations and applications of Lie Algebras and contains many cross references to Part I. The theoretical part largely deals with the representation theory of Lie algebras with a triangular decomposition, of which Kac-Moody algebras and the Virasoro algebra are prime examples. After setting up the general framework of highest weight representations, the book continues to treat topics as the Casimir operator and the Weyl-Kac character formula, which are specific for Kac-Moody algebras. The applications have a wide range. First, the book contains an exposition on the role of finite-dimensional semisimple Lie algebras and their representations in the standard and grand unified models of elementary particle physics. A second application is in the realm of soliton equations and their infinite-dimensional symmetry groups and algebras. The book concludes with a chapter on conformal field theory and the importance of the Virasoro and Kac-Moody algebras therein.

Dualities And Representations Of Lie Superalgebras

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book gives a systematic account of the structure and representation theory of finite-dimensional complex Lie superalgebras of classical type and serves as a good introduction to representation theory of Lie superalgebras. Several folklore results are rigorously proved (and occasionally corrected in detail), sometimes with new proofs. Three important dualities are presented in the book, with the unifying theme of determining irreducible characters of Lie superalgebras. In order of increasing sophistication, they are Schur duality, Howe duality, and super duality. The combinatorics of symmetric functions is developed as needed in connections to Harish-Chandra homomorphism as well as irreducible characters for Lie superalgebras. Schur-Sergeev duality for the queer Lie superalgebra is presented from scratch with complete detail. Howe duality for Lie superalgebras is presented in book form for the first time. Super duality is a new approach developed in the past few years toward understanding the Bernstein-Gelfand-Gelfand category of modules for classical Lie superalgebras. Super duality relates the representation theory of classical Lie superalgebras directly to the representation theory of classical Lie algebras and thus gives a solution to the irreducible character problem of Lie superalgebras via the Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials of classical Lie algebras.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Vertex algebra was introduced by Boreherds, and the slightly revised notion "vertex oper­ ator algebra" was formulated by Frenkel, Lepowsky and Meurman, in order to solve the problem of the moonshine representation of the Monster group - the largest sporadie group. On the one hand, vertex operator algebras ean be viewed as extensions of eertain infinite-dimensional Lie algebras such as affine Lie algebras and the Virasoro algebra. On the other hand, they are natural one-variable generalizations of commutative associative algebras with an identity element. In a certain sense, Lie algebras and commutative asso­ ciative algebras are reconciled in vertex operator algebras. Moreover, some other algebraie structures, such as integral linear lattiees, Jordan algebras and noncommutative associa­ tive algebras, also appear as subalgebraic structures of vertex operator algebras. The axioms of vertex operator algebra have geometrie interpretations in terms of Riemman spheres with punctures. The trace functions of a certain component of vertex operators enjoy the modular invariant properties. Vertex operator algebras appeared in physies as the fundamental algebraic structures of eonformal field theory, whieh plays an important role in string theory and statistieal meehanies. Moreover,eonformalfieldtheoryreveals animportantmathematiealproperty,the so called "mirror symmetry" among Calabi-Yau manifolds. The general correspondence between vertex operator algebras and Calabi-Yau manifolds still remains mysterious. Ever since the first book on vertex operator algebras by Frenkel, Lepowsky and Meur­ man was published in 1988, there has been a rapid development in vertex operator su­ peralgebras, which are slight generalizations of vertex operator algebras.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In dieser Arbeit stellen wir eine zugängliche Einführung in die Theorie lokalkonvexer Supermannigfaltigkeiten im Rahmen des kategoriellen Ansatzes vor. Hierbei wird ein besonderer Schwerpunkt auf Lie-Supergruppen und die Supergruppe der Superdiffeomorphismen gelegt. In diesem Zugang ist eine Supermannigfaltigkeit ein Funktor von der Kategorie der Grassmann-Algebren in die Kategorie der lokalkonvexen Mannigfaltigkeiten, der bestimmte lokale Modelle besitzt, die etwas wie einen Atlas bilden. Wir zeigen, dass die Werte dieser Funktoren die Struktur sogenannter multilinearer Bündel haben. Wir nutzen dies aus um einen treuen Funktor von der Kategorie der Supermannigfaltigkeiten in die Kategorie der Mannigfaltigkeiten zu konstruieren. Dieser Funktor erhält Produkte, vertauscht mit dem jeweiligen Tangentialfunktor und erhält die jeweilige Hausdorff Eigenschaft. Auf diese Weise können wir Supermannigfaltigkeiten als eine besondere Art von unendlich-dimensionalen Faserbündeln auffassen. Mittels ähnlicher Techniken erhalten wir einige nützliche Trivialisierungen von Lie-Supergruppen, sowie eine kanonische Zerlegung in einen rein geraden und einen rein ungeraden Teil. Dies erlaubt uns die klassische Äquivalenz zwischen Lie-Supergruppen und Super-Harish-Chandra-Paaren auf den Fall lokalkonvexer Lie-Supergruppen zu verallgemeinern. Die Supergruppe der Superdiffeomorphismen einer Supermannigfaltigkeit M ist ein Set-wertiger Funktor SDiff(M), der gewisse Aspekte gerader und ungerader Transformationen von M beschreibt. Wir zeigen, dass SDiff(M) sich im Wesentlichen genau wie eine Lie-Supergruppe zerlegen lässt. Falls M eine Banach-Supermannigfaltigkeit mit sigma-kompakter, endlich-dimensionaler Basis ist, gelingt es uns der Supergruppe der kompakt getragenen Superdiffeomorphismen die Struktur einer Lie-Supergruppe zu geben. - In this thesis, we provide an accessible introduction to the theory of locally convex supermanifolds in the categorical approach with a focus on Lie supergroups and the supergroup of superdiffeomorphisms. In this setting, a supermanifold is a functor from the category of Grassmann algebras to the category of locally convex manifolds that has certain local models, forming something akin to an atlas. We show that the values that these functors take have the structure of a so called multilinear bundle. We use this fact to construct a faithful functor from the category of supermanifolds to the category of manifolds. This functor respects products, commutes with the respective tangent functor and retains the respective Hausdorff property. In this way, supermanifolds can be seen as a particular kind of infinite-dimensional fiber bundles. For Lie supergroups, we use similar techniques to show several useful trivializations and construct a canonical decomposition into purely even and purely odd parts. Using this, we are able to generalize the classical equivalence between Lie supergroups and super Harish-Chandra pairs to the case of arbitrary locally convex Lie supergroups. The supergroup of superdiffeomorphisms of a supermanifold M is a certain set-valued functor SDiff(M) from the category of Grassmann algebras that captures even and odd aspects of supersmooth transformations of M. We show that SDiff(M) has essentially the same decompositions as a Lie supergroup for an arbitrary supermanifold M. If M is a Banach supermanifold with finite-dimensional and sigma-compact base manifold, we are able to turn the supergroup of superdiffeomorphisms with compact support into a Lie supergroup.

Pages: 318
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The deep and relatively new field of vertex operator algebras is intimately related to a variety of areas in mathematics and physics: for example, the concepts of "monstrous moonshine," infinite-dimensional Lie theory, string theory, and conformal field theory. This book introduces the reader to the fundamental theory of vertex operator algebras and its basic techniques and examples. Beginning with a detailed presentation of the theoretical foundations and proceeding to a range of applications, the text includes a number of new, original results and also highlights and brings fresh perspective to important works of many researchers. After introducing the elementary "formal calculus'' underlying the subject, the book provides an axiomatic development of vertex operator algebras and their modules, expanding on the early contributions of R. Borcherds, I. Frenkel, J. Lepowsky, A. Meurman, Y.-Z. Huang, C. Dong, Y. Zhu and others. The concept of a "representation'' of a vertex (operator) algebra is treated in detail, following and extending the work of H. Li; this approach is used to construct important families of vertex (operator) algebras and their modules. Requiring only a familiarity with basic algebra, Introduction to Vertex Operator Algebras and Their Representations will be useful for graduate students and researchers in mathematics and physics. The booka??s presentation of the core topics will equip readers to embark on many active research directions related to vertex operator algebras, group theory, representation theory, and string theory.
