Algebra Seminar

Higher Sugawara operators for gl(n)

Alex Molev

Friday May 15, 12:05--12:55pm, Carslaw 375


We give an explicit description of the center of the affine vertex algebra for gl(n) at the critical level. The results are applied to construct generators of the classical W-algebra for gl(n) and calculate the eigenvalues of the central elements in the Wakimoto modules at the critical level.


After the seminar we will be taking the speaker to lunch.

See the Algebra Seminar web page for information about other seminars in the series.
