### Standard and Adjoint representations of Lie algebra of SU(2)

I'm wondering whether the adjoint and the standard representations of su(2) (the lie algebra of SU(2)) are equivalent. I found this result for so(3) by showing that given the usual basis of so(3), F1, ...

### Calculating central elements of Universal Enveloping Algebras?

Simply put, how do I calculate (in general) the central elements of the UEA of some Lie algebra given some desired degree in the algebra generators? I know the so-called 'quadratic Casimir', of ...

### Which correct sentence to explain the function $g(\nabla I)=\frac{1}{1+\beta |\nabla(G_{\sigma}*I)|^2}$

I have a edge indicator function that has formula as $$g(\nabla I)=\frac{1}{1+\beta |\nabla(G_{\sigma}*I)|^2}$$ where $\nabla$ is gradient operator, $*$ is convolution operator, $G_{\sigma}$ is a ...

### What do we call the ring homomorphism $R \rightarrow \mathrm{End}_{\mathbf{Ab}}(X)$ associated with an $R$-module $X$?

First, a convention: given an abelian group $X$, write $\mathrm{End}_{\mathbf{Ab}}(X)$ for the set of all group homomorphisms $$X \rightarrow X.$$ Now let $R$ denote a ring. Question. Given an ...

### Does the “differential” of a unitary representation give continuous operators on the space of smooth vectors?

Let $\pi : G \rightarrow U(H)$ be a strongly continuous unitary representation of a Lie group, $G$, on a Hilbert space, $H$. Let $H_\infty$ be the space of smooth vectors in $H$, those $v$ for which ...

### What is the natural action of $U(\mathfrak{g})$ on $\mathbb{C}[G]$?

Let $G$ be a Lie group and $\mathfrak{g}$ its Lie algebra. What is the natural action of $U(\mathfrak{g})$ on $\mathbb{C}[G]$? It seems that the natural action comes from the following. We have a ...

### In what sense are complex representations of a real Lie algebra and complex representations of the complexified Lie algebra equivalent?

In this book I read Proposition A.1. The irreducible complex representations of a real Lie algebra $\mathfrak{g}$ are in one-to-one correspondence with the irreducible complex-linear ...
