Verma Modules over Quantum Torus Lie Algebras
Representations of various one-dimensional central extensions of quantum tori (called quantum torus Lie algebras) were studied by several authors. Now we define a central extension of quantum tori so that all known representations can be regarded as representations of the new quantum torus Lie algebras $\mathfrak{L}_q$. The center of $\mathfrak{L}_q$ now is generally infinite dimensional. In this paper, $\mathbb{Z}$-graded Verma modules $\widetilde{V}(\varphi)$ over $\mathfrak{L}_q$ and their corresponding irreducible highest weight modules $V(\varphi)$ are defined for some linear functions $\varphi$. Necessary and sufficient conditions for $V(\varphi)$ to have all finite dimensional weight spaces are given. Also necessary and sufficient conditions for Verma modules $\widetilde{V}(\varphi)$ to be irreducible are obtained.

Representations of Virasoro-Heisenberg Algebras and Virasoro-Toroidal Algebras
Virasoro-toroidal algebras, $\tilde\mathcal{T}_{[n]}$, are semi-direct products of toroidal algebras $\mathcal{T}_{[n]}$ and the Virasoro algebra. The toroidal algebras are, in turn, multi-loop versions of affine Kac-Moody algebras. Let $\Gamma$ be an extension of a simply laced lattice $\dot{Q}$ by a hyperbolic lattice of rank two. There is a Fock space $V(\Gamma)$ corresponding to $\Gamma$ with a decomposition as a complex vector space: $V(\Gamma) = \coprod_{m \in \mathbf{Z}}K(m)$. Fabbri and Moody have shown that when $m \neq 0$, $K(m)$ is an irreducible representation of $\tilde\mathcal{T}_{[2]}$. In this paper we produce a filtration of $\tilde\mathcal{T}_{[2]}$-submodules of $K(0)$. When $L$ is an arbitrary geometric lattice and $n$ is a positive integer, we construct a Virasoro-Heisenberg algebra $\tilde\mathcal{H}(L,n)$. Let $Q$ be an extension of $\dot{Q}$ by a degenerate rank one lattice. We determine the components of $V(\Gamma)$ that are irreducible $\tilde\mathcal{H}(Q,1)$-modules and we show that the reducible components have a filtration of $\tilde\mathcal{H}(Q,1)$-submodules with completely reducible quotients. Analogous results are obtained for $\tilde\mathcal{H} (\dot{Q},2)$. These results complement and extend results of Fabbri and Moody.

Isomorphisms between generalized Cartan type $W$ Lie algebras in characteristic $0$
In this paper, we determine when two simple generalized Cartan type $W$ Lie algebras $W_d (A, T, \varphi)$ are isomorphic, and discuss the relationship between the Jacobian conjecture and the generalized Cartan type $W$ Lie algebras.

Keywords:Simple Lie algebras, the general Lie algebra, generalized Cartan type $W$ Lie algebras, isomorphism, Jacobian conjecture
