ABSTRACT We classify the finite dimensional irreducible representations of rectangular finite $W$-algebras, i.e., the finite $W$-algebras $U(\mathfrak{g}, e)$ where $\mathfrak{g}$ is a symplectic or orthogonal Lie algebra and $e \in \mathfrak{g}$ is a nilpotent element with Jordan blocks all the same size.

    ABSTRACT: We classify the finite dimensional irreducible representations with integral central character of finite $W$-algebras $U(\mathfrak g,e)$ associated to standard Levi nilpotent orbits in classical Lie algebras of types B and C. This classification is given explicitly in terms of the highest weight theory for finite $W$-algebras.

    ABSTRACT: We study in detail two row Springer fibres of even orthogonal type from an algebraic as well as topological point of view. We show that the irreducible components and their pairwise intersections are iterated P^1-bundles. Using results of Kumar and Procesi we compute the cohomology ring with its action of the Weyl group. The main tool is a type D diagram calculus labelling the irreducible components in an convenient way which relates to a diagrammatical algebra describing the category of perverse sheaves on isotropic Grassmannians based on work of Braden. The diagram calculus generalizes Khovanov's arc algebra to the type D setting and should be seen as setting the framework for generalizing well-known connections of these algebras in type A to other types. The results will be connected to Brauer algebras at non-generic parameters in a subsequent paper.

    ABSTRACT: We consider finite W-algebras U(g,e) associated to even multiplicity nilpotent elements in classical Lie algebras. We give a classification of finite dimensional irreducible U(g,e)-modules with integral central character in terms of the highest weight theory for finite W-algebras. As a corollary, we obtain a parametrization of primitive ideals of U(g) with associated variety the closure of the adjoint orbit of e and integral central character.
