Abstract: Let $ \operatorname {Y}(\mathfrak{gl}_n)$ be the Yangian of the general linear Lie algebra $ \mathfrak{gl}_n$. We denote by $ \operatorname {Y}(\mathfrak{sp}_n)$ and $ \operatorname {Y}(\mathfrak{so}_n)$ the twisted Yangians corresponding to the symplectic and orthogonal subalgebras in the Lie algebra $ \mathfrak{gl}_n$. These twisted Yangians are one-sided coideal subalgebras in the Hopf algebra $ \operatorname {Y}(\mathfrak{gl}_n)$. We provide realizations of irreducible modules of the algebras $ \operatorname {Y}(\mathfrak{sp}_n)$ and $ \operatorname {Y}(\mathfrak{so}_n)$ as certain quotients of tensor products of symmetic and exterior powers of the vector space $ \mathbb{C}^n$. For the Yangian $ \operatorname {Y} (\mathfrak{gl}_n)$ such realizations have been known, but we give new proofs of these results. For the twisted Yangian $ \operatorname {Y}(\mathfrak{sp}_n)$, we realize all irreducible finite-dimensional modules. For the twisted Yangian $ \operatorname {Y}(\mathfrak{so}_n)$, we realize all those irreducible finite-dimensional modules, where the action of the Lie algebra $ \mathfrak{so}_n$ integrates to an action of the special orthogonal Lie group $ \mathrm {SO}_n$. Our results are based on the theory of reductive dual pairs due to Howe, and on the representation theory of Mickelsson algebras.
