Abstract: Let be a simple finitedimensional Lie algebra and let be a commutative associative algebra with unity. Global Weyl modules for the generalized loop algebra were defined by Chari and Pressley (2001) and Feigin and Loktev (2004) for any dominant integral weight of by generators and relations and further studied by Chari, Fourier, and Khandai (2010). They are expected to play a role similar to that of Verma modules in the study of categories of representations of . One of the fundamental properties of Verma modules is that the space of morphisms between two Verma modules is either zero or onedimensional and also that any nonzero morphism is injective. The aim of this paper is to establish an analogue of this property for global Weyl modules. This is done under certain restrictions on , and . A crucial tool is the construction of fundamental global Weyl modules in terms of fundamental local Weyl modules.
