Expected degree of weights in Demazure modules of \( {\hat{\mathfrak{sl}}_2} \)

  • T. BliemEmail author
  • S. Kousidis


We compute the expected degree of a randomly chosen element in a basis of weight vectors in the Demazure module V w (Λ) of \( {\hat{\mathfrak{sl}}_2} \). We obtain en passant a new proof of Sanderson's dimension formula for these Demazure modules.
