Representations of sl3ℂ, Part I

Part of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics book series (GTM, volume 129)


This lecture develops results for \(\mathfrak{s}{{\mathfrak{l}}_{2}}\mathbb{C} \) analogous to those of §11.1 (though not in exactly the same order). This involves generalizing some of the basic terms of §11 (e.g., the notions of eigenvalue and eigenvector have to be redefined), but the basic ideas are in some sense already in §11. Certainly no techniques are involved beyond those of §11.1.
