By Roger Carter

Lie algebras have many diversified purposes, either in arithmetic and mathematical physics. This e-book presents an intensive yet comfortable mathematical remedy of the topic, together with either the Cartan-Killing-Weyl concept of finite dimensional uncomplicated algebras and the extra glossy conception of Kac-Moody algebras. Proofs are given intimately and the single prerequisite is a legitimate wisdom of linear algebra. The Appendix offers a precis of the fundamental houses of every Lie algebra of finite and affine variety.

Example text

We write xi = ad y − 1 i x ∈ L Then we have r y − + 1 r+1 xv = y − + 1 i=0 r i y − 1 xi r−i v Now y − + 1 xi = yxi + = = y − xi ad y − 1 xi + xi+1 + + xi xi y − 1 y − 1 xi Hence y − + r = i=0 r+1 = i=0 1 r i r i−1 r+1 xv r xi+1 y − 1 r−i r i v+ i=0 r+1 xi y − 1 r+1−i v+ i=0 interpreting r+1 = i=0 r +1 i ad y − 1 i x This completes the induction. 6. Let v ∈ Vi , x y ∈ L. 7 with = i , = 0. Since v ∈ Vi , y − i 1 n−j v = 0 if j n − j is sufficiently large. Since L is nilpotent ad y x = 0 if j is sufficiently large.

Suppose L is semisimple. If L is simple then L must be non-trivial since the trivial simple Lie algebra is not semisimple. Thus we suppose L is not simple. Let I be a minimal non-zero ideal of L. Then I = O and I = L. 7. 10. Thus an element x ∈ L lies in I ⊥ if and only if the coordinates of x with respect to a basis of L satisfy dim I homogeneous linear equations which are linearly independent. It follows that dim I ⊥ = dim L − dim I 44 The Cartan decomposition Now consider the subspace I ∩ I ⊥ .

Next suppose that is algebraic over B. Then we can find f t ∈ B t of minimal degree such that f = 0. We write f t = b0 tn + b1 tn−1 + · · · + bn b0 = 0 Now let g t be any polynomial in B t satisfying g = 0. We divide g t by f t using the Euclidean algorithm. We are working over an integral domain B rather than over a field. However, provided we multiply g t by a sufficiently high power of the leading coefficient b0 of f t we can carry out the Euclidean process over B. We thus obtain b0k g t = u t f t + v t where u t v t ∈ B t and deg v t < deg f t .
