Let $\mathfrak{g}$ be a complex simple Lie algebra, $\omega_0$ a dominant weight, $\rho$ a fundamental representation with highest weight $\Lambda$.

Fix some weight $w$ in this representation. Let $\sigma$ enumerate ways in which weight space $w$ can be reached from the highest weight, i.e. each $\sigma$ corresponds to the sequence of the form
$$E_{i_n}^-\dots E_{i_1}^-|\Lambda\rangle$$
where $\alpha_{i_n}+\dots+\alpha_{i_1}=\Lambda-w$. On the way from $\Lambda$ to $w$ we encounter weights $$(\Lambda=w_1, w_2, \dots, w_n, w_{n+1}=w)$$
Form the following vector in the weight space of $w$:
$$|v(w)\rangle=\sum_\sigma \prod_{a=1}^n \frac{1}{\langle w-w_a,\omega_0\rangle} E_{i_n}^-\dots E_{i_1}^-|\Lambda\rangle$$
**Question one** is: does there exist any simple formula for the norm $\langle v(w)|v(w)\rangle$?

**Question two** is: prove the identity
$$\sum_w (-1)^n \langle v(w)|v(w)\rangle \prod_{\beta>0} \langle \omega_0,\beta\rangle^{-2\langle w,\beta>/<\beta,\beta>}=0$$
Some experimentation shows that the identity is correct, and when the weight space is one-dimensional the formula is
$$\langle v(w)|v(w)\rangle=\left(\frac{constant}{\prod_{\beta_a>0} \langle \beta_a,\omega_0\rangle^{n_a}}\right)^2$$
where $\beta_a$ are positive roots and for each of them $n_a$ is the length of the sequence
$$w-n_a\beta_a,\dots,w-\beta_a,w$$
How can something like that be proved? There should be some nice formula for weight space with dimension >1 as well, but the brute force method didnt help... Any ideas would be appreciated. Do there exist any similar expressions in the literature?
Thank you!
