Automorphic Forms and Lie Superalgebras - Algebra and Applications 5 (Hardback)Urmie Ray (author)
- We can order this
This book provides the reader with the tools to understand the ongoing classification and construction project of Lie superalgebras. It presents the material in as simple terms as possible. Coverage specifically details Borcherds-Kac-Moody superalgebras. The book examines the link between the above class of Lie superalgebras and automorphic form and explains their construction from lattice vertex algebras. It also includes all necessary background information.

From the reviews:
"The aim of this book is to present the very active theory of Borcherds-Kac-Moody Lie algebras and of G-graded vertex algebras at a level accessible to graduate students and mathematicians from other fields. An introduction of this type is certainly very desirable ... . The author of this review, being a mathematician from a different field ... may be a good test person for this book. I like the concept of the book ... ." (Rainer Schulze-Pillot, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 e)
