Lie algebra: symmetric and exterior power of representation

If $\mathfrak{g}$ is a Lie algebra, $V$ and $W$ are representation of $\mathfrak{g}$ we define the action of $\mathfrak{g}$ on $V \otimes W$ in the following way: $X \cdot (v \otimes w)=(X \cdot v) ...

Highest weights of irreducible components of tensor product of irreducible sl(3)-module.

I am study the representation theory of $sl(3)$ and I have a question about the tensor representation of irreducible $sl(3)$-modules as follows: For each weight $\mu$, let $L(\mu)$ be the irreducible ...

Show that V $\otimes _\mathbb{R}$ $\mathbb{C}$ is isomorphic to V + iV

Let V be a real n-dimensional vector space. Show that V $\otimes _\mathbb{R}$ $\mathbb{C}$ is isomorphic to V + iV. Note that V $\otimes _\mathbb{R}$ $\mathbb{C}$ is a real vector space and is ...

Complete reducibility of tensor product

Let $L$ be a Lie algebra (over a algebraically closed field, not sure if it is relevant). If $V$ and $W$ are two completely reducible $L$-modules, can anyone give a hint on how to show that $V\otimes ...

Representations of Direct Sum of Lie Algebras

I'm trying to prove the following. Let $\frak{g}$ and $\frak{h}$ be (semisimple) Lie algebras. Then every representation $d$ of $\frak{g}\oplus\frak{h}$ is the tensor product of representations $d^1$ ...

$\hom_{k}\left(V_{p,q},V_{r,s}\right)\simeq V_{q+r,p+s}$

Define $V_{p,q}=\underset{p}{\underbrace{V\otimes\cdots\otimes V}}\otimes\underset{q}{\underbrace{V^{*}\otimes\cdots\otimes V^{*}}}$. In a previous question here I was shown that ...

Endomorphisms of $V$ and the dual space

I was told that $V\otimes V^{*}\simeq\mbox{End}\left(V\right)$. I can't find the isomorphism itself though. Can anyone tell me what it is with a proof? Thanks!

What is meant by “direct summand in a tensor product”?

I am currently working on the topic of Lie - Algebras and I have stumbled a few times over the expression "direct summand in a tensor product". The text says that $\ V(\lambda) $ as an ...
