  Lie group decompositions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
They are essential technical tools in the representation theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras; they can also be used to study the algebraic topology of such groups and associated homogeneous spaces.
Since the use of Lie group methods became one of the standard techniques in twentieth century mathematics, many phenomena can now be referred back to decompositions.
The same ideas are often applied to Lie groups, Lie algebras, algebraic groups and p-adic number analogues, making it harder to summarise the facts into a unified theory.

 Infinite-dimensional Lie groups and their representations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-16)
The investigation of the infinite-dimensional Lie groups is partially motivated by the role they play in connection with the description of the symmetries of certain structures arising in the mathemathical physics.
According to the general principle of Lie theory, the Lie groups are studied by means of the corresponding Lie algebras.
These are the so-called enlargible Lie algebras, and their name comes from the fact that ``any'' Lie algebra gives rise to a local Lie group, and the difficult point is to ``enlarge'' the local group to a group in the usual sense.

 Talk Abstract: Conserving algorithms on Lie groups   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-16)
Lie groups and their tangent or cotangent bundles form a class of manifolds for which particularly natural generalizations of these procedures exist.
The usual weighted averages of vector field evaluations are computed in the Lie algebra or its dual using the natural trivializations of the tangent and cotangent bundles; the resulting update vector is then mapped into the phase space using either the exponential map or an approximate `algorithmic' exponential map.
Group decompositions can be used to design efficient algorithmic exponentials; these decompositions are often suggested by the symmetries of the relevant mechanical system.

 lie group
In mathematics, a Lie group (pronounced "lee", named after Sophus Lie) is an analytic real or complex manifold that is also a group such that the group operations multiplication and inversion are analytic maps.
Lie groups are important in mathematical analysis, physics and geometry because they serve to describe the symmetry of analytical structures.
If we require that the Lie group be simply connected, then the global structure is determined by its Lie algebra: for every finite dimensional Lie algebra g over F there is a unique (up to isomorphism) simply connected Lie group G with g as Lie algebra.

 Description of LiE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-16)
LiE is the name of a software package that enables mathematicians and physicists to perform computations of a Lie group theoretic nature.
It focuses on the representation theory of complex semisimple (reductive) Lie groups and algebras, and on the structure of their Weyl groups and root systems.
LiE does not compute directly with elements of the Lie groups and algebras themselves; it rather computes with weights, roots, characters and similar objects.

 Lie Theoretic Comments   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-16)
In 1993 we noticed that the simplest cases of the Lakshmibai-Seshadri basis results, those for Demazure modules whose lowest weights were integer multiples of weights obtained by acting on lambda with a lambda-minuscule w, could be given purely combinatorial interpretations and proofs.
The ways of reading off the elements of the poset which are consistent with the partial order on the poset correspond to the reduced decompositions of w.
Hence the number of reduced decompositions of w is equal to the number of order extensions of P(w).

 Rutgers Lie Group Seminar Fall 1998
Friday, Oct. 9, 1998, 11:30am-12:30pm, Hill 425 Alan Weinstein: Near-homomorphisms from compact Lie groups A near-homomorphism from a group G to a group H is a map a from G to H such that a(gh) is "sufficiently close" to a(g)a(h) for all g and h in G.
When G and H are compact Lie groups, it was shown by Grove and Karcher in the 1970's that a near-homomorphism is near a homomorphism.
The affine flag manifolds of G are the spaces of parahoric subalgebras (a local field analogue of parabolic subalgebras) of a given type in the Lie algebra with scalars extended to F.

The describing models are bilinear systems whose state varies on the Lie group of special unitary matrices of dimensions two and four, respectively.
By performing decompositions of Lie groups, taking into account the describing equations at hand, we derive control laws to steer the state of the system to any desired final configuration.
The analysis is motivated by the implementation of one and two quantum bit logic gates using nuclear magnetic resonance experiments which involve the active manipulation of one or two interacting spin $\frac{1}{2}$ particles.

Using Lie theory, we generalize this to an n-qubit decomposition, the concurrence canonical decomposition (CCD) SU(2{sup n})=KAK.
The group K fixes a bilinear form related to the concurrence, and in particular any unitary in K preserves the tangle vertical bar <{phi} vertical bar (-i{sigma}{sub 1}{sup y}){center_dot}{center_dot}{center_dot}(-i{sigma}{sub n}{sup y}) vertical bar {phi}> vertical bar{sup 2} for n even.
Thus, the CCD shows that any n-qubit unitary is a composition of a unitary operator preserving this n-tangle, a unitary operator in A which applies relative phases to a set of GHZ states, and a second unitary operator which preserves the tangle.

 Generalized Polar Decompositions for the Approximation of the Matrix Exponential
Generalized Polar Decompositions for the Approximation of the Matrix Exponential: SIAM Journal on Matrix Analysis and Applications Vol.
The algorithms presented have the property that, if $Z \in {\frak{g}}$, a Lie algebra of matrices, then the approximation for exp(Z) resides in G, the matrix Lie group of ${\frak{g}}$.
We propose algorithms based on a splitting of Z into matrices having a very simple structure, usually one row and one column (or a few rows and a few columns), whose exponential is computed very cheaply to machine accuracy.

Satish will first talk about a theorem regarding the decomposition of planar graphs that appeared in a paper by Klein, Plotkin and Rao (get it here).
This result follows from the Okamura-Seymour theorem on multicommodity flows in planar graphs where all the terminals lie on the same face, which shows that max-flow equals min-cut in such case.
In fact, the statement of the theorem is much stronger, i.e., it gives the existance of disjoint paths.

 Efficient Computation of the Matrix Exponential by Generalized Polar Decompositions
In this paper we explore the computation of the matrix exponential in a manner that is consistent with Lie-group structure.
Our point of departure is the method of generalized polar decompositions, which we modify and combine with similarity transformations that bring the underlying matrix to a form more amenable to efficient computation.
We develop techniques valid for a range of Lie groups: the orthogonal group, the symplectic group, Lorentz, isotropy, and scaling groups.
