Title

Central extensions of infinite dimensional Lie algebras

Abstract

Central extension is an important topic for infinite dimensional Lie algebras. In this talk, we will look at generalizations of affine Kac-Moody Lie algebras and locally finite Lie algebras, and discuss recent developments on central extensions of these algebras.
