Classification of Lie algebras by Dynkin diagram

Ibukun Ademehin


The language of simple roots introduced by Eugene Dynkin simplifies the classification of Lie algebras generated by root vectors. In this talk starting from the basics, I am going to describe how the familiar classification of simple Lie algebras over the complex field is obtained.  If time permits, I will go further to describe how some other classes of subalgebras can be obtained from the Dynkin diagrams.
