Abstract:
We use fermionic operators to construct toroidal Lie algebras of classical types, including in particular that of symplectic affine algebras, which is first realized by fermions.

We simplify and generalize an argument due to Bowcock and Watts showing that one can associate a finite Lie algebra (the `classical vacuum preserving algebra') containing the M\"obius $sl(2)$ subalgebra to any classical $\W$-algebra. Our construction is based on a kinematical analysis of the Poisson brackets of quasi-primary fields. In the case of the $\W_\S^\G$-algebra constructed through the Drinfeld-Sokolov reduction based on an arbitrary $sl(2)$ subalgebra $\S$ of a simple Lie algebra $\G$, we exhibit a natural isomorphism between this finite Lie algebra and $\G$ whereby the M\"obius $sl(2)$ is identified with $\S$.

Abstract:
Let F_o be a non-archimedean locally compact field of residual characteristic not 2. Let G be a classical group over F_o (with no quaternionic algebra involved) which is not of type A_n for n>1. Let b be an element of the Lie algebra g of G that we assume semisimple for simplicity. Let H be the centralizer of b in G and h its Lie algebra. Let I and I_b denote the (enlarged) Bruhat-Tits buildings of G and H respectively. We prove that there is a natural set of maps j_b : I_b --> I which enjoy the following properties: they are affine, H-equivariant, map any apartment of I_b into an apartment of I and are compatible with the Lie algebra filtrations of g and h. In a particular case, where this set is reduced to one element, we prove that j_b is characterized by the last property in the list. We also prove a similar characterization result for the general linear group.

Abstract:
We introduce a new class of "electrical" Lie groups. These Lie groups, or more precisely their nonnegative parts, act on the space of planar electrical networks via combinatorial operations previously studied by Curtis-Ingerman-Morrow. The corresponding electrical Lie algebras are obtained by deforming the Serre relations of a semisimple Lie algebra in a way suggested by the star-triangle transformation of electrical networks. Rather surprisingly, we show that the type A electrical Lie group is isomorphic to the symplectic group. The nonnegative part (EL_{2n})_{\geq 0} of the electrical Lie group is a rather precise analogue of the totally nonnegative subsemigroup (U_{n})_{\geq 0} of the unipotent subgroup of SL_{n}. We establish decomposition and parametrization results for (EL_{2n})_{\geq 0}, paralleling Lusztig's work in total nonnegativity, and work of Curtis-Ingerman-Morrow and de Verdi\`{e}re-Gitler-Vertigan for networks. Finally, we suggest a generalization of electrical Lie algebras to all Dynkin types.

Abstract:
Generalizing Feingold-Frenkel's construction we use Weyl bosonic fields to construct toroidal Lie algebras of types $A_n, B_n$, $C_n$ and $D_n$ of level $-1, -2, -1/2$ and -2 respectively. In particular, our construction also gives new bosonic construction for the orthogonal Lie algebras in the cases of affine Lie algebras.

Abstract:
Since Quillen proved his famous equivalences of homotopy categories in 1969, much work has been done towards classifying the rational homotopy types of simply connected topological places. The majority of this work has focused on rational homotopy types with the same cohomology algebra. The models in this case were differential graded algebras and acted similarly to differential forms. These models were then used together with some deformation theory to describe a moduli space for all rational homotopy types with a given cohomology algebra. Indeed, this theory has been very well developed. However, there is another case to consider. That is, the collection of rational homotopy types with the same homotopy Lie algebra (same homotopy groups and Whitehead product structure). This case, arguably, is closer to the heart of homotopy theory, as it fixes the homotopy groups themselves and how they interact with each other. However, the Lie case has received less attention and is less developed than its cohomology counterpart. The main purpose of this paper is to completely develop the theory for rational homotopy types of simply-connected topological spaces with the same homotopy Lie algebra. It will include some foundations of the theory as well as some new work. Often, previously-known results will be streamlined, reworded, or reproven to make them directly relevant to the results of this paper. By the end of the paper, deformation theory will be developed and the moduli space for rational homotopy types with a fixed homotopy Lie algebra will be defined and justified.

Abstract:
The general expression for the bicovariant bracket for odd generators of the external algebra on a Poisson-Lie group is given. It is shown that the graded Poisson-Lie structures derived before for $GL(N)$ and $SL(N)$ are the special cases of this bracket. The formula is the universal one and can be applied to the case of any matrix Lie group.

Abstract:
A Lie group $G$ naturally acts on its Lie algebra $\gg$, called the adjoint action. In this paper, we determine the orbit types of the compact exceptional Lie group $G_2$ in its Lie algebra $\gg_2$. As results, the group $G_2$ has four orbit types in the Lie algebra $\gg_2$ as $$ G_2/G_2, \quad G_2/(U(1) \times U(1)), \quad G_2/((Sp(1)\times U(1))/\Z_2), \quad G_2/((U(1)\times Sp(1))/\Z_2). $$ These orbits, especially the last two orbits, are not equivalent, that is, there exists no $G_2$-equivariant homeomorphism among them.

Abstract:
Notions of quasi-classical Lie-super algebra as well as Lie-super triple systems have been given and studied with some examples. Its application to Yang-Baxter equation has also been given.

Abstract:
Let $\mathfrak{g}$ be a compact, simple Lie algebra of dimension $d$. It is a classical result that the convolution of any $d$ non-trivial, $G$ -invariant, orbital measures is absolutely continuous with respect to Lebesgue measure on $\mathfrak{g}$ and the sum of any $d$ non-trivial orbits has non-empty interior. The number $d$ was later reduced to the rank of the Lie algebra (or rank $+1$ in the case of type $A_{n}$). More recently, the minimal integer $k=k(X)$ such that the $k$-fold convolution of the orbital measure supported on the orbit generated by $X$ is an absolutely continuous measure was calculated for each $X\in \mathfrak{g}$. In this paper $\mathfrak{g}$ is any of the classical, compact, simple Lie algebras. We characterize the tuples $(X_{1},...,X_{L})$, with $X_{i}\in \mathfrak{g},$ which have the property that the convolution of the $L$ -orbital measures supported on the orbits generated by the $X_{i}$ is absolutely continuous and, equivalently, the sum of their orbits has non-empty interior. The characterization depends on the Lie type of $ \mathfrak{g}$ and the structure of the annihilating roots of the $X_{i}$. Such a characterization was previously known only for type $A_{n}$.
