A Few Good Lie Algebras

Tom Purslow

ATB G.205,

Lie algebras are awesome. We all know it deep down inside in places we don't like to talk about at parties. You need Lie algebras, you want Lie algebras. Sadly this seminar will not really deal with why that's true... 
In this seminar we will explore the world of exceptional Lie algebras and their maximal subalgebras. We saw last week some of the methods used by Dynkin to classify them over the complex numbers, so this week I thought I would treat you to the problem when our field has positive characteristic.
