This entry contributed by Todd Rowland The roots of a semisimple Lie algebra are the Lie algebra weights occurring in its adjoint representation . The set of roots form the root system , and are completely determined by . It is possible to choose a set of Lie algebra positive roots , every root is either positive or is positive. The Lie algebra simple roots are the positive roots which cannot be written as a sum of positive roots. The simple roots can be considered as a linearly independent finite subset of Euclidean space , and they generate the root lattice . For example, in the special Lie algebra of two by two matrices with zero matrix trace , has a basis given by the matrices

6. What IS A Lie Group?

What IS a Lie Group?
Thanks to John Baez and Dave Rusin for pointing out that this page is a non-rigorous, non-technical attempt at answering the question ONLY for compact real forms of complex simple Lie groups, such as groups of rotations acting on spheres, for which a complete classification is known. There are a lot of Lie groups that are NOT compact real forms of complex simple Lie groups. For instance, the real line with the action of translation is a non-compact Lie group, and solvable Lie groups are certainly not simple groups. An example of a solvable Lie group is the nilpotent Lie group that can be formed from the nilpotent Lie algebra of upper triangular NxN real matrices. So, when you read this page, be SURE to realize that when I say "Lie group", that is my shorthand for "compact real form of a complex simple Lie group", and similar shorthand is being used when I say "Lie algebra". As it will turn out that the Lie groups I will discuss are closely related to the division algebras, I will note that you can find a lot about the division algebras on Dave Rusin's division algebra fact page At the end of this page, some miscellaneous related matters are discussed:

The Clifford Algebra Cl(8) has dimension 2^8 = 256. Since 256 = 16 x 16 = 2^4 x 2^4, the full spinors of Cl(8) are 16-dimensional, and the half-spinors of Cl(8) are 8-dimensional Cl(8) has graded structure The 28-dimensional grade-2 bivectors of Cl(8) form the Lie Algebra Spin(8) The E8 Lie Algebra is the sum (on this page I am using the word "sum" very imprecisely) of the 120-dimensional Spin(16) Lie Algebra of the 2^16 = 256 x 256 = 65,536-dimensional Cl(16) Clifford Algebra and one 2^7 = 128-dimensional Cl(16) half-spinor space
To construct E8 from Cl(8):
First , construct the 120-dimensional Spin(16) from Cl(8): Since Cl(16) can be written as the tensor product Cl(16) = Cl(8) x Cl(8), the graded structure of Cl(16) can be written in terms of the graded structure of Cl(8) as follows: Therefore: Spin(16) = 120 = 28x1 + 8x8 + 1x28 = 28 + 64 + 28, and Spin(16) is the sum of two copies of Spin(8) plus the square of the 8-dimensional Cl(8) grade-1 vector space Second , construct the 128-dimensional half-spinors of Cl(16) from Cl(8): The Cl(8) half-spinors are 8-dimensional, so that the Cl(8) full-spinor space is 8e + 8o = 16-dimensional, where 8e is one half-spinor 8-dimensional space and 8o is the other mirror image half-spinor 8-dimensional space.

by Minoru Wakimoto (Kyushu University, Japan)
The representation theory of affine Lie algebras has been developed in close connection with various areas of mathematics and mathematical physics in the last two decades. There are three excellent books on it, written by Victor G Kac. This book begins with a survey and review of the material treated in Kac's books. In particular, modular invariance and conformal invariance are explained in more detail. The book then goes further, dealing with some of the recent topics involving the representation theory of affine Lie algebras. Since these topics are important not only in themselves but also in their application to some areas of mathematics and mathematical physics, the book expounds them with examples and detailed calculations.
  • Preliminaries on Affine Lie Algebras
  • Characters of Integrable Representations
  • Principal Admissible Weights
  • Residue of Principal Admissible Characters
  • Characters of Affine Orbifolds
  • Operator Calculus
  • Branching Functions
  • W-Algebra
  • Vertex Representations for Affine Lie Algebras
  • Soliton Equations

Readership: Graduate students and researchers interested in representation theory, combinatorics, vertex algebras, modular forms, soliton equations, particle physics and solvable models.

Lie algebra
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. A Lie algebra (pronounced as "lee", named in honor of Sophus Lie ) is an algebraic structure in mathematics whose main use lies in studying geometric objects such as Lie groups and differentiable manifolds
A Lie algebra is a vector space g over some field F (typically the real or complex numbers) together with a binary operation g g g , called the Lie bracket , which satisfies the following properties:
  • it is bilinear , i.e., [ a x b y z a x z b y z ] and [ z a x b y a z x b z y ] for all a b in F and all x y z in g it satisfies the Jacobi identity , i.e., [[ x y z z x y y z x ] = for all x y z in g x x ] = for all x in g
Note that the first and third property together imply [ x y y x ] for all x y in g ("anti-symmetry"). Note also that the multiplication represented by the Lie bracket is not in general

Victor Ginzburg - Principal nilpotent pairs in a semisimple Lie algebra
VICTOR GINZBURG, University of Chicago Principal nilpotent pairs in a semisimple Lie algebra
We introduce and study a new class of pairs of commuting nilpotent elements in a semisimple Lie algebra. These pairs enjoy quite remarkable properties and are expected to play a major role in Representation theory. The properties of these pairs and their role is similar to those of the principal nilpotents. To any principal nilpotent pair we associate a two-parameter analogue of the Kostant partition function, and propose the corresponding two-parameter analogue of the weight multiplicity formula. In a different direction, each principal nilpotent pair gives rise to a harmonic polynomial on the Cartesian square of the Cartan subalgebra, that transforms under an irreducible representation of the Weyl group. In the special case of GL n , the conjugacy classes of principal nilpotent pairs and the irreducible representations of the Symmetric group, S n , are both parametrised (in a compatible way) by Young diagrams. In general, our theory provides a natural generalization to arbitrary Weyl groups of the classical construction of simple

A geometric view
The standard view: a linear space L with a product, i.e., a bilinear map L x L -> L denoted a,b > [a,b] Let us however view it as a linear space L with a (1,2)-variant tensor c. We may view c as a map L* x L x L > R Different restrictions of this map to a fewer number of arguments result in major concepts of Lie agebra: These maps can be put into one diagram:
