Realizations of BCr-graded intersection matrix algebras with grading subalgebras of type Br, r 3

Sandeep Bhargava and Yun Gao

Vol. 263 (2013), No. 2, 257–281

We study intersection matrix algebras im(A[d]) that arise from affinizing a Cartan matrix A of type Br with d arbitrary long roots in the root system ΔBr, where r 3. We show that im(A[d]) is isomorphic to the universal covering algebra of so2r+1(a,η,C,χ), where a is an associative algebra with involution η, and C is an a-module with hermitian form χ. We provide a description of all four of the components a, η, C, and χ.
