The course was offered for the last time in Summer Semester 2020. It is replaced by [MAT-43-27-K-7] Lie Algebras and their Representation Theory.


Part 1:
  • finite reflection groups, root systems,
  • classification of the semisimple complex Lie algebras.

Part 2:

  • resolvable and nilpotent Lie algebras,
  • representation theory of semisimple complex Lie algebras.


  • J. E. Humphreys: Introduction to Lie Algebras and Representation Theory,
  • K. Erdmann: Introduction to Lie Algebras.


Further literature will be announced in the lecture.
