Unitary quasi-finite representations of W . (English) Zbl 0974.17033
H. Awata, M. Fukuma, Y. Matsuo and S. Odake [J. Phys. A 28, 105-112 (1995; Zbl 0852.17025)] developed a theory of quasi-finite highest-weight representations of the subalgebras W ,p (p[x]) of W 1+ , the most important being W =W ,x . In the paper under review the authors develop a general approach to these problems by following the basic ideas in [V. Kac and A. Radul, Commun. Math. Phys. 157, 429-457 (1993; Zbl 0826.17026)]. The main result is the classification and construction of all unitary irreducible quasi-finite highest-weight modules over W . These modules are realized in terms of unitary highest-weight representations of the Lie algebra of infinite matrices with finitely many nonzero diagonals.
