"Introduction to the Representation Theory of Finite-Dimensional Lie Algebras, Part I"

Date: Fri, March 14, 2014
Time: 13:45
Place: Seminar Room (120), Research I

Abstract: The first part of the presentation will be concerned with introducing the notion of root systems for semisimple Lie algebras. The matter covered will include complete descriptions of the root systems exhibited by the classical algebras, of types A - D, as well as the exceptional types E, F and G.
