I am extremely bad at asking questions.This is an attempt.

I am having a little bit of trouble understanding the procedure involved in constructing weight diagrams. Can someone sketch the basics of how to do this for $sl(3,C)$

Its not a concept I'm too familiar with

This question came from our site for professional mathematicians.

This is not the place for such a question, try MSE. And I suggest Fulton-Harris, Representation theory, for a nice introduction. –  abx Mar 22 '14 at 7:56
