Lie Algebras

Part of the Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete book series (MATHE3, volume 47)


In this chapter we fix our conventions and terminology and we provide a quick review of the notions in differential geometry and in Lie theory that will be used. Since algebraic geometry, mainly the geometry of Abelian varieties, will only show up later and since we will need to do in that case a little more than just a review, we defer that subject to Part II of the book.
