The N-eigenvalue Problem and Two Applications Institutional Repository Document uri icon


  • We consider the classification problem for compact Lie groups $Gsubset U(n)$ which are generated by a single conjugacy class with a fixed number $N$ of distinct eigenvalues. We give an explicit classification when N=3, and apply this to extract information about Galois representations and braid group representations.
