The main goal of this project is to describe the irreducible Gelfand-Tsetlin modules over the complex Lie algebra sl(n). This problem is of huge importance for the representation theory of Lie algebras, where the complete classification of irreducible modules is known only when n = 2. To reach our objective we plan to use the results obtained by the candidate for the case of sl(3) during the development of his PhD thesis. Further, in [1] and [10] it was shown how to describe the category O using blocks parametrized by central characters, such that each block is equivalent to the category of A-modules for some finite-dimensional associative algebra A. The same method could be applied to the category of Gelfand-Tsetlin modules. In this direction we intend to obtain a description of the blocks that allows us: to study the internal structure of the blocks using as a main tool the localization functor, to relate the blocks (in some cases give equivalence of the categories) using the translation functor and, finally, to use the techniques of representation theory of finite dimensional algebras to describe the quivers associated with the different blocks.
