Description (last modified by )
Initial implementation of Lie algebras in sage.
This will contain the following:
 Free Lie algebras
 Hall basis
 Lyndon basis
 Abelian Lie algebras
 Lie algebras from an associative algebra
 Lie algebras from structure coefficients
 Finite type Lie algebras
 As matrices for types ABCD
 In the Chevalley basis
 gl_{n}
 Untwisted affine Lie algebras constructed from a finite type
 Untwisted affine KacMoody Lie algebras (i.e. the above and the Lie derivative)
 Universal enveloping algebras
 PBW bases
 Quotient, sub, and direct sum Lie algebras and Lie algebra ideals
 Other examples:
 Upper triangular matrices
 Strictly upper triangular matrices
 Heisenberg algebra
 Witt algebra
 Virasoro algebra
 Some nilpotent Lie algebras
 KacMoody algebras based only on a (generalized) Cartan matrix
 Lie algebra (co)homology
 Chargeless and Verma modules for the Virasoro algebra
 Fock space
There might also be the following:
 su_{n}
 recovery of Lie group from Lie algebra
 connection between the quantum group and the Hall algebra (coming from representations of a quiver over F_{q})
With this, one will be able to do basic computations, as well as compute things such as the lower central series (depending on the type).
Current ticket breakdown (more might follow):
 #16820  the categories and the basic framework and finite dimensional given by structure coefficients
 #17416  subalgebras
 #16821  classical Lie algebras
 #16822  PBW basis for the universal enveloping algebra
 #16823  the free Lie algebra
 #16824  ideals, quotients, and finitely presented Lie algebras
 #16825  untwisted affine Lie algebras
 #16826  KacMoody algebras
 #22883  Lie algebra (co)homology
 #23037  Chargeless and Verma modules for the Virasoro algebra
 #22949  Add method to construct a

 #16860  Interface with Gap (not part of the current branch)
 #16861  Interface with LiE (not part of the current branch)

comment:5 Changed 4 years ago by
That's a hell of a project!
At some point, when linear algebra works in combinatorial free modules, I'll want (and probably make) the Lie algebra of primitives of a Hopf algebra.
comment:6 Changed 4 years ago by
 Dependencies changed from #10963 to #10963 #14898
I'm currently setting #14898 as a dependency since that will likely be done before this patch and because they should play together.
comment:7 Changed 4 years ago by
 Dependencies changed from #10963 #14898 to #10963 #14898 #15151
For defining the action on Fock space needs #15151.

 Dependencies changed from #10963 #14898 #15151 to #10963 #14898 #15151 #15289
To do PBW(type) bases, I'll need #15289.

Okay, here's the current version of the patch for reference for those don't want to get/use the combinat queue. It does about 80% or so of the functionality I want, but it probably could use some restructuring. It's also missing a lot of documentation (most importantly doctests). Here's what's done and (mostly) working:
 Free Lie algebras in the Hall basis
 The Lyndon basis for the free Lie algebra
 Abelian Lie algebras
 Lie algebras from an associative algebra
 Lie algebras from structure coefficients
 Finite type Lie algebras
 As matrices for types ABCD
 In the Chevalley basis
 gl_{n}
 The Lie algebra of strictly upper triangular matrices
 The Lie algebra of upper triangular matrices
 Untwisted affine Lie algebras constructed from a finite type
 Untwisted affine KacMoody Lie algebras (i.e. the above and the Lie derivative) [done]
 Universal enveloping algebras
 KacMoody algebras based only on a (generalized) Cartan matrix
 LLT basis and Fock spaces for U_{q}(sl_{n}) [done]
 PBW(type) bases of universal enveloping algebra (quantum group) [done for Lie algebras up to abstracting internal structure]
 canonical bases of quantum groups [90% done]
 the Heisenberg Lie algebras and some other misc examples
 quotient, sub, and direct sum Lie algebras and Lie algebra ideals [doesn't always seem to reduce properly]
Everything else:
 twisted affine Lie and KacMoody algebras via loop groups/diagram automorphims [I want to do this, but haven't started and might push to a later ticket]
 the Goodman and Wenzl modified LLT algorithm [haven't started yet]
 polynomial representations for sl_{n} [doesn't give the correct results]
 implementation of quantum groups [65% done]
 connection between the quantum group and the Hall algebra (coming from representations of a quiver over F_{q}) [I would need to understand Hall algebras better to do this]
 su_{n} [possibly to be dropped as the Sage infrastructure does not seem to be there]
 recovery of Lie group from Lie algebra (where it makes sense) [0% done, likely to be dropped]

Thanks. That has the branching rules and operations on the algebras themselves, which is useful, than doing computations within them.

Lie algebra (co)homology is done in #22883. It is not the most efficient implementation and doesn't seem work very well for Lie algebras of dimension larger than 10 due to the amount of information needed to be computed (i.e., large dimensional vector spaces).
