Covering Algebras of Kac-Moody Lie Algebras and EALA's.



In joint work with B. Allison and A. Pianzola we have developed a theory of covering algebras. We can obtain new EALA's from old ones using this theory as well as obtaining a vast generalization of V. Kac's early work on covering algebras of the finite dimensional simple Lie algberas. This theory, together with applications, will be presented in this talk.
