# Lie Groups and Lie Algebras: E. B. Dynkin’s Seminar

Share this page *Edited by *
*Simon G. Gindikin; Ernest B. Vinberg*

In celebration of E. B. Dynkin's 70th birthday, this
book presents current papers by those who participated in Dynkin's
seminar on Lie groups and Lie algebras in the late 1950s and early
1960s. Dynkin had a major influence not only on mathematics, but also on
the students who attended his seminar—many of whom are
today's leading mathematicians in Russia and in the U. S.

Dynkin's contributions to the theory of Lie groups is well known, and
the survey paper by Karpelevich, Onishchik, and Vinberg allows readers
to gain a deeper understanding of this work.

Features several aspects of modern developments in Lie groups and Lie
algebras, including …

theory of invariants

superalgebras

arithmetic applications

connections with mathematical physics

Providing insight on the extraordinary mathematical traditions that grew out of this important seminar, Lie Groups and Lie Algebras is a fitting celebration of Dynkin's achievements.
