  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.

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
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.
Irreducible Lie algebras of infinite type
Let F be a finite dimensional vector space over an algebraically closed field of characteristic^2, 3, 5. It is shown that if LCZg\(V) is an irreducible Lie algebra of infinite type then either

Properties of the real Lie algebra so*(2n) and its finite-dimensional representations are described. The structure of the Clifford algebras associated with the two fundamental spinor representations
