Example text

This suggest the following choice of a basis of V : Xei +ej Hi = Ei,i − Ei+l,i+l , Xei −ej = Ej,i − Ei+l,j+l , i = j, = Ei+l,j − Ej+l,i , X−ei −ej = Ej,i+l − Ei,j+l , i < j. Let h be the linear span of Hi , i = 1, . . , l. 9, and conclude that o(2l) is semisimple, and h is a Cartan subalgebra in o(2l). , αl−1 = el−1 − el , αl = el−1 + el form a basis of the root system of o(2l). The corresponding Dynkin diagram is Dl . sp(2l), l ≥ 3, is a semisimple Lie algebra of type Cl Now we equip a complex vector space V of dimension 2l with a non-degenerate skew-symmetric bilinear form, and define sp(2l) as the set of linear transformations A satisfying (14).

Explicit constructions of the exceptional semisimple Lie algebras are much more involved, see [4] and references therein for details. Exercise Determine the positive roots and hence describe b, n+ and n− for o(2l+1), sp(2l), and o(2l). 33 References [1] N. Bourbaki. Groupes et alg`ebres de Lie. Masson, Paris, 1975, 1981. W. Carter.
