The Miura Operator is an R-matrix, via Intersecting Branes

The Miura transformation is a powerful formalism to construct generators of vertex operator algebras in free field representation. In this talk, I will explain that Miura operators are R-matrices of a certain quantum algebra, and comment on physical implications. I will also describe how to derive this picture from the study of intersecting branes in (twisted) M-theory, compactified on a torus. Based on joint work with Saebyeok Jeong.
