Quantum extremal loop weight modules and monomial crystals
Abstract
In this paper we construct a new family of representations for the quantum toroidal algebras of type $A_n$, which are $\ell$extremal in the sense of Hernandez [24]. We construct extremal loop weight modules associated to level 0 fundamental weights $\varpi_\ell$ when $n=2r+1$ is odd and $\ell=1, r+1$ or $n$. To do it, we relate monomial realizations of level 0 extremal fundamental weight crystals with integrable representations of $\mathcal{U}_q(sl_{n+1}^{tor})$, and we introduce promotion operators for the level 0 extremal fundamental weight crystals. By specializing the quantum parameter, we get finitedimensional modules of quantum toroidal algebras at roots of unity. In general, we give a conjectural process to construct extremal loop weight modules from monomial realizations of crystals.
