If L is finite dimensional, then V can be taken to be finite dimensional ( Ado's theorem for characteristic p Iwasawa's theorem for characteristic The classification of finite dimensional simple Lie algebras over an algebraically closed field of characteristic can be accomplished by (1) determining matrices called Cartan matrices corresponding to indecomposable simple systems of roots and (2) determining the simple algebras associated with these matrices (Jacobson 1979, p. 128). This is one of the major results in Lie algebra theory, and is frequently accomplished with the aid of diagrams called

In other words, Graded Lie Algebras are sort of like the linear tangent spaces of symmetric space manifolds. with g(-v) =/= 0. Such a GLA is called a GLA of the v-th kind. ... the pair (Z,t) is the associated pair, where Z is the characteristic element and t is a grade-reversing Cartan involution. ... Let g ... be a real simple GLA of the v-th kind, and (Z,t) be the associated pair. Let Go be the group of grade-preserving automorphisms of G. ... Let U = Go exp(g(1) + ... + g(v)), which is a parabolic subgroup of G. The real flag manifold M = G/U is called a flag manifold of the v-th kind.

http://it.stlawu.edu/~dmelvill/17b/Laintro.html

Extractions: 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

Conversely, the antisymmetry property implies property 3 above as long as F is not of characteristic 2. Note also that the multiplication represented by the Lie bracket is not in general associative , that is, [[ x y z ] need not equal [ x y z edit Every vector space becomes an abelian Lie algebra trivially if we define the Lie bracket to be identically zero.

14. Denotations Of Semi-simple Lie Algebras
Type IIA corresponds to sl(3) and type IIB to so(5), while type IIC did not appear to correspond to the lie algebra of any known transformation group.
http://www.xs4all.nl/~plast/Lie-denotations.htm

Extractions: This note is based on the two books  and  on the history of Lie groups and Lie algebras. During the period 1878-1891 Killing studied space forms ( Raumformen ) and space transformation groups ( Lie'sche Transformationsgruppen ). Part of this study was a classification of all finite-dimensional simple Lie algebras. By and large the story is as follows: Killing began his studies with the special linear and special orthogonal point transformation groups. For some reason he overlooked the projective line transformation groups of linear line complexes. (In my opinion just because they are not point transformation groups.) Following this path he came to three infinite series of Lie algebras, corresponding to the special linear groups and the special orthogonal groups of odd and even orders. He applied algebraic means, in the process defining root systems and the concept of semi-simplicity, and finding the decomposition of semi-simple Lie algebras into simple ones. At a later time Kiling started a classification of simple Lie algebras according to increasing rank. Rank one only comprises the algebras sl(2), so(3), sp(1).

The successes of such methods as symplectic geometry, Kirillov-Constant-Souriau quantization, Lax equations, etc., call for a more geometric treatment of the content of Lie algebras.
