Graduate Student Seminar, 4:30pm January 19, 2004

Speaker:Keith Hubbard and Ben Jones


Lie groups, Lie algebras and invariants


Lie groups and Lie algebras show up in nearly every corner of mathematics from math physics to topology to number theory. We will give basic definitions and examples of both, and provide additional applicable banter. We will then investigate the correspondence between simply connected Lie groups and finite dimensional Lie algebras, as well as simple descriptions of their invariants without losing information.
