  •  Introduction to representation theory of semisimple (complex) Lie algebras
  •  10/18/2016
  •  3:00 PM - 3:50 PM
  •  C304 Wells Hall

In this talk, we will define semisimple Lie algebras and their representations. We will see all the finite dimensional irreducible representations of sl(2,C) and a few ways they help us understand the structure of a semisimple Lie algebra.
