Finitness of prolongations of graded Lie algebras

  title={Finitness of prolongations of graded Lie algebras},
  author={Stefano Marini and Costantino Medori and Mauro Nacinovich},
  journal={arXiv: Differential Geometry},
We find necessary and sufficient conditions for the finiteness of Tanaka's maximal prolongation of fundamental graded Lie algebras. In the final part we discuss some examples of simple prolongations.

On transitive contact and CR algebras

We consider locally homogeneous $CR$ manifolds and show that, under a condition only depending on their underlying contact structure, their $CR$ automorphisms form a finite dimensional Lie group.

Tanaka prolongation of free Lie algebras

With the exception of the three step real free Lie algebra on two generators, all real free Lie algebras of step at least three are shown to have trivial Tanaka prolongation. This result, together

Primitive subalgebras of exceptional Lie algebras

The object of this paper is to classify (up to inner automorphism) the primitive, maximal rank, reductive subalgebras of the (complex) exceptional Lie algebras. By primitive we mean that the

Differential Systems Associated with Simple Graded Lie Algebras

This is a survey paper on differential systems associated with simple graded Lie algebras. By a differential system (M, D), we mean a pfaffian system D ( or a distribution in Chevalley's sense) on a

Semi-Simple Lie Algebras and Their Representations

This paper presents an overview of the representations of Lie algebras, particularly semi-simple Lie algebras, with a view towards theoretical physics. We proceed from the relationship between Lie

Infinite dimensional primitive Lie algebras

Transitivity questions in differential geometry can often be reduced to problems involving a certain type of "topologized" Lie algebra. In [6] we developed a structure theory for such algebras

Prolongation of Tanaka structures: an alternative approach

The classical theory of prolongation of G-structures was generalized by N. Tanaka to a wide class of geometric structures (Tanaka structures), which are defined on a non-holonomic distribution.

On generalized graded Lie algebras and geometric structures I

The main purpose of the present paper is to establish a new prolongation theorem for certain linear group structures which are of infinite type and even not elliptic, and is to apply this theorem to
