Abstract: Vertex-operator constructions of affine Kac-Moody Lie algebras, discovered around 1980, represent one of the most important motivations for the development of modern vertex-algebra theory.
In the last few years, new explicit realizations of affine vertex-algebras have been investigated, motivated by the study of modern physical theories and their correspondence with the theory of vertex-algebras.
We will present our discoveries in this direction, published in several articles, and discuss applications in the representation theory of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras and W-algebras.
