software for classification of Lie algebras
Posted:
Nov 5, 1997 2:36 PM


I would like to ask if there exist a software package to classify a Lie algebra in terms of its semisimple decomposition. In other words given a Lie algebra:
[T[i],T[j]]= c[i,j,k]*T[k]
The package will yield the semisimple components and the proper combinations of the operators T[i] that lead to this decomposition. Thank you. MH mhumi@wpi.edu
