### Irreducible quasifinite modules over a class of Lie algebras of block type

#### Abstract

For any nonzero complex number $q$, there is a Lie algebra of Block type, denoted by $\mathcal{B}(q)$. In this paper, a complete classification of irreducible quasifinite modules is given. More precisely, an irreducible quasifinite module is a highest weight or lowest weight module, or a module of intermediate series. As a consequence, a classification for uniformly bounded modules over another class of Lie algebras, the semi-direct product of the Virasoro algebra and a module of intermediate series, is also obtained. Our method is conceptional, instead of computational.
