On electric-magnetic duality

- W. Nahm
- Mathematics
- 1 September 1997

Abstract As shown by Seiberg and Witten, electric-magnetic duality allows to calculate the central charges of N = 2 supersymmetric theories with massless hypermultiplets as derivatives of simple… Expand

Supersymmetries and their Representations

- W. Nahm
- Physics
- 27 March 1978

Abstract We determine all manifest supersymmetries in more than 1 + 1 dimensions, including those with conformal or de Sitter space-time symmetry. For the supersymmetries in flat space we determine… Expand

Quasi-rational fusion products

- W. Nahm
- Mathematics, Physics
- 8 February 1994

Fusion is defined for arbitrary lowest weight representations of W-algebras, without assuming rationality. Explicit algorithms are given. A category of quasi-rational representations is defined and… Expand

Self-dual monopoles and calorons

- W. Nahm
- Mathematics
- 1984

The study of nonlinear partial differential equations remained outside the mainstream of mathematics, because their solution spaces seemed to be rather arbitrary and complicated. But physicists… Expand

W-algebras with two and three generators

- R. Blumenhagen, M. Flohr, A. Kliem, W. Nahm, A. Recknagel, R. Varnhagen
- Physics
- 26 August 1991

Abstract We construct all W -algebras of chiral fields which in addition to the energy-momentum density have a single generator of conformal dimension up to 8. Some of them were unexpected, which… Expand

A simple formalism for the BPS monopole

- W. Nahm
- Physics
- 10 March 1980

Abstract A simple formalism for the BPS monopole is obtained by generalizing the ADHM construction of multi-instantons to a Hilbert space. Both the potential itself and the Green's functions for… Expand

A Hiker's Guide to K3.¶Aspects of N= (4,4) Superconformal Field Theory¶with Central Charge c= 6

- W. Nahm, K. Wendland
- Mathematics, Physics
- 8 December 1999

Abstract: We study the moduli space ℳ of N=(4,4) superconformal field theories with central charge c= 6. After a slight emendation of its global description we find the locations of various known… Expand

Conformal Field Theory and Torsion Elements of the Bloch Group

- W. Nahm
- Physics, Mathematics
- 18 April 2004

We argue that rational conformally invariant quantum field theories in two dimensions are closely related to torsion elements of the algebraic K-theory group K_3(C). If such a theory has an… Expand

Irreducible representations of the osp(2,1) and spl(2,1) graded Lie algebras

- M. Scheunert, W. Nahm, V. Rittenberg
- Mathematics
- 1977

We illustrate through the examples of the osp(2,1) and spl(2,1) algebras the differences between the properties of the irreducible representations of simple graded Lie algebras and simple Lie… Expand
