A Classification of Line Bundles over a Scheme


In this paper, we attempt to indicate the links between representations over a Lie algebra and line bundles over a scheme. Our hypothesis is that we can make a correspondence between representations of a solvable Lie algebra and line bundles. Finally, we study the decomposition of these bundles by using the representation theory over solvable Lie algebras.
