For Dynkin labels of weights in 5 and 10 of SU(5), 10 and 16 of SO(10) and 27 ofE, we find it instructive to (a) explōit the Cartan decom position into a nonsemi simple symmetric subalgebra and coset space, (b) introduce a set of annihilation and creation operators, that may act on an invariant 10>, to represent suitably the shift-action and weight-vectors.
