References: See Appendix A of Lando's Graphs on Surfaces and their Applications for a quick overview (also here). Chapters 1-2 of Serre's Linear Representations of Finite Groups are also useful. | |

Nov 15, 2019 | Aryal, Deepak | Killing form, solvable, nilpotent and semi-simple lie algebras, existence of maximal solvable and nilpotent radical, equivalent definitions of semisimple lie algebras (in terms of killing form and direct sum of simple lie algebra). References: Page 88-90 and 95-98 of the book "Lie Groups: An approach through invariants and representations" by Claudio Procesi. |
