This paper deals with certain aspects of a conjecture made by B. Kostant in 1983 relating the Coxeter number to the occurrence of the simple finite groups L(2, q) in simple complex Lie groups. The first chapter of my thesis presents a unified approach to Kostant's conjecture that yields very general results for the rank two case. The second chapter examines… CONTINUE READING
