Synopsis:

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with modern methods of study and identification of Lie algebras and to develop the necessary practical skills.

1) Summary of basic concepts of Lie algebras theory, structure of semi-simple complex Lie algebras

2) Invariants of coadjoint representation (a.k.a. Casimir invariants) and methods of their computation

3) Invariant characteristics of Lie algebras and their use in identification

4) Explicit decomposition of a given Lie algebra into the direct sum of algebras

5) Construction of Levi decomposition

6) Determination of nilradical

7) Structure of nilpotent Lie algebras

8) Solvable Lie algebras with given nilradical
