CalTitle1: Generators of affine W-algebras

Auth: kevinc@pkevinc.pc (assumed)

Alexander Molev (University of Sydney) Friday 27 May, 12-1pm, Place: Carslaw 375 We construct explicit generators of the affine W-algebra of type A associated with a nilpotent matrix whose Jordan blocks are of the same size. By applying the quantum Miura transformation we recover the construction of the principal W-algebra of Fateev and Lukyanov (1988). In the classical limit and the critical level we thus obtain generators of the respective classical W-algebras.
