This paper attempts to provide a comprehensive compilation of results, many new here, involving the invariant totally antisymmetric tensors (Omega tensors) which define the Lie algebra cohomology cocycles of su(n), and that play an essential role in the optimal definition of Racah–Casimir operators of su(n). Since the Omega tensors occur naturally within the algebra of totally antisymmetrized products of λ-matrices of su(n), relations within this algebra are studied in detail, and then employed… 
Variations on a theme of Heisenberg, Pauli and Weyl
The parentage between Weyl pairs, the generalized Pauli group and the unitary group is investigated in detail. We start from an abstract definition of the Heisenberg–Weyl group on the field and then
Large N behavior of two dimensional supersymmetric Yang-Mills quantum mechanics
We analyze the N→∞ limit of supersymmetric Yang-Mills quantum mechanics (SYMQM) in two space time dimensions. To do so we introduce a particular class of SU(N) invariant polynomials and give the
Lie algebra invariant adjoint fermion systems with N = 2 supersymmetry
This paper describes supersymmetric quantum mechanical models (D) of D fermions invariant under the adjoint action of a compact simple Lie algebra of dimension D. It determines the spectrum, ground
An angular momentum approach to quadratic Fourier transform, Hadamard matrices, Gauss sums, mutually unbiased bases, the unitary group and the Pauli group
The construction of unitary operator bases in a finite-dimensional Hilbert space is reviewed through a nonstandard approach combining angular momentum theory and representation theory of SU(2). A

We study general transformation on the density matrix of two-level system that keeps the expectation value of observable invariant. We introduce a set of generators that yields Hermiticity and trace
Symmetry algebras of stringy cosets
Abstract We find the symmetry algebras of cosets which are generalizations of the minimal-model cosets, of the specific form $$ \frac{\mathrm{SU}{(N)}_k\times

Higher order simple Lie algebras
It is shown that the non-trivial cocycles on simple Lie algebras may be used to introduce antisymmetric multibrackets which lead to higher-order Lie algebras, the definition of which is given. Their

After defining cohomologically higher-order BRST and anti-BRST operators for a compact simple algebra G, the associated higher-order Laplacians are introduced and the corresponding supersymmetry
