Cluster algebras and category $\mathscr{O}$ for representations of Borel subalgebras of quantum affine algebras

David Hernandez and Bernard Leclerc

Vol. 10 (2016), No. 9, 2015–2052

Abstract

Let O be the category of representations of the Borel subalgebra of a quantum affine algebra introduced by Jimbo and the first author. We show that the Grothendieck ring of a certain monoidal subcategory of O has the structure of a cluster algebra of infinite rank, with an initial seed consisting of prefundamental representations. In particular, the celebrated Baxter relations for the 6-vertex model get interpreted as Fomin–Zelevinsky mutation relations.
