Jump to: navigation search In mathematics , a Lie algebra is an algebraic structure whose main use is in studying geometric objects such as Lie groups and differentiable manifolds . Lie algebras were introduced to study the concept of infinitesimal transformations . The term "Lie algebra" (after Sophus Lie , pronounced /liː/ ("lee"), not /laɪ/ ("lie") ) was introduced by Hermann Weyl in the . In older texts, the name " infinitesimal group " is used.

A Lie algebra is a type of algebra over a field ; it is a vector space over some field F together with a binary operation called the Lie bracket , which satisfies the following axioms: for all scalars a b in F and all elements x y z in for all elements x y in When F is a field of characteristic two, one has to impose the stronger condition: for all x in for all x y z in For any associative algebra A with multiplication *, one can construct a Lie algebra

This Week's Finds in Mathematical Physics (Week 5)
John Baez
I think I'll start out this week's list of finds with an elementary introduction to Lie algebras, so that people who aren't "experts" can get the drift of what these are about. Then I'll gradually pick up speed... 1) Indecomposable restricted representations of quantum sl_2, Vyjayanathi Chari and Alexander Premet, University of California at Riverside preprint. Vyjanathi is our resident expert on quantum groups, and Sasha, who's visiting, is an expert on Lie algebras in characteristic p. They have been talking endlessly across the hall from me and now I see that it has born fruit. This is a pretty technical paper and I am afraid I'll never really understand it, but I can see why it's important, so I'll try to explain that! Let me start with the prehistory, which is the sort of thing everyone should learn. Recall what a Lie algebra is... a vector space with a "bracket" operation such that the bracket [x,y] of any two vectors x and y is again a vector, and such that the following hold: a) skew-symmetry: [x,y] = -[y,x]. b) bilinearity: [x,ay] = a[x,y], [x,y+z] = [x,y] + [x,z]. (a is any number) c) Jacobi identity: [x,[y,z]] + [y,[z,x]] + [z,[x,y]] = 0.

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:

Lie algebras
A Lie algebra L , is a vector space over some field together with a bilinear multiplication [,]:LxL>L, called the bracket, which satisfies two simple properties:
  • [x,y] = -[y,x] (Anticommutativity)
  • [x[y,z]] = [[x,y],z] + [x,[y,z]] (Jacobi identity). The Jacobi identity says that the adjoint action is a derivation. It turns out that this simple formal definition gives you a vast range of interesting algebras. For example, any associative algebra can be given a Lie structure by defining [x,y] = xy - yx, where we denote the associtive multiplication by juxtaposition. The Lie bracket is then called the commutator and measures how non-commutative your algebra is. The finite-dimensional simple (i.e., no ideals) Lie algebras over the complex numbers are well-understood. The canonical reference for their structure, classification and representation theory is the book by Humphreys . Over algebraically-closed fields of characteristic p , a huge amount of work has gone into showing that there are no surprises. I don't know of any good expository overviews. When you start to consider infinite-dimensional (simple) Lie algebras (over C), life becomes much more interesting. Firstly, there are the Cartan algebras, which are Lie algebras of vector fields on finite-dimensional manifolds. These algebras have finite-dimensional analogues in characteristic

    Semi-simple and Affine Lie Algebras (GQT)
    Credits 8 credit points Instructors Ban, E.P. van den (Universiteit Utrecht), Leur, J.W. van de (Universiteit Utrecht), Helminck, G.F. (Universiteit Twente) E-mail Aim The aim of this course is to give a thorough introduction to the theory of finite dimensional semisimple Lie algebras, and the infinite dimensional affine algebras. Description The theory of Lie groups was initiated by the Norwegian mathematician Sophus Lie (1842 - 1892) with the purpose of analyzing differential equations in the presence of ymmetries. Much about a Lie group can be understood from its linearization at the identity, the so called Lie algebra.
    In the course we will systematically develop the structure theory of these Lie algebras. In particular we will study the semisimple algebras. Over the field of complex numbers these are precisely the complexified Lie algebras of the compact Lie groups with finite center.
    The structure of semisimple Lie algebras can be understood
    in terms of so called root systems and the associated reflection (or Weyl) groups. We will discuss the classification of these algebras in terms of the so-called Dynkin diagrams. Important (i.e. in quantum physics) is the representation theory of semisimple algebras. We will discuss the classification of irreducible representations in terms of weight theory. The beautiful character and dimension formulas of Weyl will be discussed.

        Merry Christmas!  In this post, we will build on some of the previous posts about chord diagrams.  In a bit of a tangent from previous thoughts, we will explore the relationship between chord diagrams and Lie algebras.  Explicitly, last time we came up with a relation, which we will henceforth call the IHX-relation: Remember that this was really another aspect of the 4T relation for regular chord diagrams.  We will see how this relationship is a pictorial representation of the Jacobi identity , which allows us to interpret generalized chord diagrams modulo the IHX relation as instructions on how to combine a large number of Lie brackets.     The first step is to introduce the , which is a very natural tool for writing down instructions on manipulating tensor powers of vector spaces.  If we have a Lie algebra with an invariant inner product, we can turn a large class of graphs with extra data into such instructions.  This class of graphs includes chord diagrams, and we will see that in this framework, the IHX relation and the Jacobi relation are the same thing.

    This book starts with the elementary theory of Lie groups of matrices and arrives at the definition, elementary properties, and first applications of cohomological induction, which is a recently discovered algebraic construction of group representations. Along the way it develops the computational techniques that are so important in handling Lie groups. The book is based on a one-semester course given at the State University of New York, Stony Brook in fall, 1986 to an audience having little or no background in Lie groups but interested in seeing connections among algebra, geometry, and Lie theory. These notes develop what is needed beyond a first graduate course in algebra in order to appreciate cohomological induction and to see its first consequences. Along the way one is able to study homological algebra with a significant application in mind; consequently one sees just what results in that subject are fundamental and what results are minor.
