On the skew representations of the quantum affine algebra

  • Mark J. Hopkins
  • A. I. Molev


An explicit realization of the skew representations of the quantum affine algebra U q (gl n ) is given. It is used to identify these representations in a simple way by calculating their highest weight, Drinfeld polynomials and the Gelfand-Tsetlin character (orq-character).



Key words

q-character Drinfeld polynomials Gelfand-Tsetlin pattern
