Virasoro Lie Conformal Algebra#

The Virasoro Lie conformal algebra is generated by \(L\) and a central element \(C\). The \(\lambda\)-brackets are given by:

\[[L_\lambda L] = T L + 2 \lambda L + \frac{\lambda^3}{12} C.\]

It is an H-graded Lie conformal algebra with \(L\) of degree \(2\).

The Virasoro Lie Conformal algebra over \(R\).


  • R – a commutative ring; behaviour is undefined if \(R\) is not a Field of characteristic zero.
