Construction and classification of complex simple Lie algebras via projective geometry Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We construct the complex simple Lie algebras using elementary algebraic geometry. We use our construction to obtain a new proof of the classification of complex simple Lie algebras that does not appeal to the classification of root systems. ¬© Birkh√§user Verlag, Basel, 2002.
