"Classification of Simple Complex Lie Algebra"
It is well known that Lie groups and Lie algebras have both algebraic structures and geometric structures. Algebraic structures and geometric structures individually and collectively yield fruitful results for the study of Lie groups and Lie algebras. Classification of simple complex Lie algebra is a foundation for the study of representations of Lie groups and Lie algebras. This talk conveys the Dynkin Diagram proof for the classification of simple complex Lie algebras.
