Quantum mechanics on the circle and W{sub 1+{infinity}}

Technical Report:

Abstract

The algebra W{sub 1+{infinity}}, with central charge c = 0, can be identified with the algebra of quantum observables of a particle moving on a circle. Mathematically, it is the universal enveloping algebra of the Euclidean algebra in two dimensions. Similarly, the super-W{sub {infinity}} algebra is found to be the universal enveloping algebra of the super-Euclidean algebra in two dimensions. (author). 14 refs.
