The Weyl-Kac Weight Formula
We provide the first formulae for the weights of all simple highest
weight modules over Kac-Moody algebras. For generic highest weights,
we present a formula for the weights of simple modules similar to the
Weyl-Kac character formula. For the remaining highest weights, the
formula fails in a striking way, suggesting the existence of
`multiplicity-free' Macdonald identities for affine root systems.
