The Theorem of the Highest Weight and the Weyl Character Formula

Nolte, Alexander D.


  • In this thesis, we explore the representation theory of semisimple Lie algebras, assuming roughly a first course in Lie algebras and a bit of algebraic background. After discussing preliminaries, we develop universal enveloping algebras, then prove the Theorem of the Highest Weight. The final two chapters of this thesis explore further results in representation theory, proving Chevalley's ... read more
