Deformation quantization and W-algebras
Finite W-algebras are relatively new algebras arising
in Lie theory and closely related to universal enveloping
algebras of semisimple Lie algebras.
They originate to Kostant's work of late 70's and were
extensively studied during the last decade (Brundan,
Ginzburg, Goodwin, Kleshchev, Premet, the speaker and
others). In my lecture I will explain how
Deformation quantization can be used to define and study
