There is a substantial amount of work that has been done on the loose idea of series of Lie groups but which has not been published. This page gives some links to unpublished work.
  • Pierre Vogel This is Pierre Vogel's homepage with links to his unpublished papers.
  • Dylan Thurston This is Dylan Thurston's preprint which reports on a computer calculation which shows that the F4 series and the E6 series only have finitely many points.
  • Predrag Cvitanovic This is Predrag Cvitanovic's electronic book "Group Theory". This is work in progress.
  • Predrag Cvitanovic This is the preprint "Classical and exceptional Lie algebras as invariance algebras" by Predrag Cvitanovic. This was published as preprint by the Department of Theoretical Physics, University of Oxford but it is now unavailable.
  • Tony Smith This is a page which (amongst other things) gives all 5-step gradings (Type II) on simple Lie algebras.
  • Automorphic forms The formula (64) gives the spherical vector for the simply laced exceptional groups parametrised by s=m/2. The case s=1/2 m=1 corresponds to F_4. This is not simply laced and is not included. The term I_3 is related to cubic Jordan algebras.
  • The exceptional series was discovered independently in integrable field theory.

  • Another hint may be the Rogers or ultraspherical polynomials as discussed in 1.4.1 for k=0,1/2,1,2. There is an obvious question for k=4 we should get K\G/K for G=G_2 and we may get an interpretation for k=3 in terms of the sextonions.
