In science:

In Section 3 we prove that every cuspidal weight module is the twisted localization of a simple parabolically induced module.
Classification of simple weight modules over affine Lie algebras
In Section 4 we prove the main theorem which provides the complete list of cuspidal weight modules over affine Lie algebras.
Classification of simple weight modules over affine Lie algebras
In particular, we show that the twisted affine Lie algebras do not admit any cuspidal weight modules with finite dimensional weight spaces.
Classification of simple weight modules over affine Lie algebras
To complete the classification we need to describe which parabolically induced modules have finite dimensional weight spaces and, in view of Theorem 3.35, to determine which parabolically induced modules have bounded weight multiplicities and to determine the cuspidal modules we obtain from them by twisted localization.
Classification of simple weight modules over affine Lie algebras
If f is cuspidal, then if (TS± ) holds for one choice of the sign ± it holds for the other as wel l.
Critical p-adic L-function
