# Finitness of prolongations of graded Lie algebras

@article{Marini2018FinitnessOP, title={Finitness of prolongations of graded Lie algebras}, author={Stefano Marini and Costantino Medori and Mauro Nacinovich}, journal={arXiv: Differential Geometry}, year={2018} }

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.

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.

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…
