Application of vertex algebras to the structure theory of certain representations over the Virasoro algebra
Abstract
In this paper we discuss the structure of the tensor product V'_{\alpha,\beta}\otimes L(c,h) of irreducible module from intermediate series and irreducible highest weight module over the Virasoro algebra. We generalize Zhang's irreducibility criterion, and show that irreducibility depends on the existence of integral roots of a certain polynomial, induced by a singular vector in the Verma module V(c,h). A new type of irreducible Virmodule with infinitedimensional weight subspaces is found. We show how the existence of intertwining operator for modules over vertex operator algebra yields reducibility of V'_{\alpha ,\beta}\otimes L(c,h) which is a completely new point of view to this problem. As an example, the complete structure of the tensor product with minimal models c=22/5 and c=1/2 is presented.
