Schur-Like Forms for Matrix Lie Groups , Lie Algebras and Jordan Algebras

  title={Schur-Like Forms for Matrix Lie Groups , Lie Algebras and Jordan Algebras},
  author={Gregory S. Ammar},
We describe canonical forms for elements of a classical Lie group of matrices under similarity transformations in the group. Matrices in the associated Lie algebra and Jordan algebra of matrices inherit related forms under these similarity transformations. In general, one cannot achieve diagonal or Schur form, but the form that can be achieved displays the eigenvalues of the matrix. We also discuss matrices in intersections of these classes and their Schur-like forms. Such multistructured… CONTINUE READING
