Submodule Structure of Generalized Verma Modules Induced from Generic Gelfand-Zetlin Modules

  • V. S. Mazorchuk
  • S. A. Ovsienko


For complex Lie algebra sl(n, C) we study the submodule structure of generalized Verma modules induced from generic Gelfand-Zetlin modules over some subalgebra of type sl(k, C). We obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a submodule generalizing the Bernstein-Gelfand-Gelfand theorem for Verma modules.
