# An Analogue of a Reductive Algebraic Monoid Whose Unit Group Is a Kac-Moody Group

Share this page
*Claus Mokler*

By an easy generalization of the Tannaka-Krein
reconstruction we associate to the category of admissible representations of
the category \({\mathcal O}\) of a Kac-Moody algebra, and its category
of admissible duals, a monoid with a coordinate ring.

The Kac-Moody group is the Zariski open dense unit group of
this monoid. The restriction of the coordinate ring to the Kac-Moody group is
the algebra of strongly regular functions introduced by V. Kac and D.
Peterson.

This monoid has similar structural properties as a reductive
algebraic monoid. In particular it is unit regular, its idempotents related to
the faces of the Tits cone. It has Bruhat and Birkhoff decompositions.

The Kac-Moody algebra is isomorphic to the Lie algebra of this
monoid.
