Brief description The project will address major mathematical problems on representations of the families of quantum groups and vertex algebras associated with Lie algebras. It will create new connections between representation theory and mathematical physics. The theory of quantum groups originated from solvable lattice models in statistical mechanics and has turned out to have important connections with and applications to a wide range of subjects in mathematics and physics. The project will rely on these connections to extend and develop explicit theory of both the classical and quantum versions of the vertex algebras which are of great importance to conformal field theory and soliton spin chain models.
