Toward Classification of Classical Lie Superalgebras

  • D. Leites
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 245)


The purpose of this talk is to list the known simple Z-graded Lie superalgebras of finite growth over the field ¢ of complex numbers, compare the list with the similar one for Lie algebras, discuss their completeness and make emphasis on the geometric structures preserved by these algebras.
