### Invariants of representation theory of Lie groups

How to compute the determinant of a representation of an element of the special linear group? How do I argue that it doesn't change? (@Marek: @rschwieb: Yes well, given one represenation (with det=...

### Lie Derivative in Projective Hilbert Space

In considering a projective Hilbert space, $P(H)$, for linear maps (tensors) of vectors in the space, $A^{a}_{b}v_{a}=u_b$, is there a natural definition for the Lie Derivative for such linear maps? ...

### Submanifold of a Lie group - tangent space

Let $G$ be a compact Lie group and $H, H' \leq G$ Lie subgroups. Consider the set $M = H' \cdot H = \{h\cdot h' \ \vert \ h \in H, h' \in H'\}$. Is it possible to describe explicitly the tangent space ...

### Is there any Lie algebra that is not constructed from an associative algebra

I see in Wikipeida that every Lie algebra is either constructed from an associative algebra by defining: $[x,y]=xy-yx$, or a subalgebra of a Lie algebra thus constructed. Where can I find a proof? ...

### Subspace of a homogeneous space.

Given two homegenous spaces $\frac{G}{H}$, $\frac{A}{B}$ with $A\subset B$ is there a way to prove that $\frac{A}{B}\subset \frac{G}{H}$ ie that $B\subset A\cap H$? In particular I would like to ...
Fix a $\mathbb Z_+^n$-graded Lie algebra ${\frak a}=\oplus_{r \in\mathbb Z_+^n}^{} {\frak a}[r]$ such that ${\frak g}:={\frak a}[0]$ is a finite-dimensional semisimple Lie algebra over the complex ...
