Indecomposable Finite-Dimensional Representations of a Class of Lie Algebras and Lie Superalgebras

  • Hans Plesner JakobsenEmail author
Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 2027)


The topic of indecomposable finite-dimensional representations of the Poincaré group was first studied in a systematic way by Paneitz [5, 6]. In these investigations only representations with one source were considered, though by duality, one representation with two sources was implicitly present.
