Abstract

W-algebras (of finite type) are certain associative algebras constructed from nilpotent orbits in semisimple Lie algebras. In this talk I am going to describe a relation between irreducible finite dimensional representations of a W-algebra and primitive ideals of the universal enveloping algebra whose associated variety coincides with the closure of the given orbit.
