Nature of problem:To find explicit expressions (in standard order) for the invariants of a Lie algebra, i.e. for the polynomials in the generators which commute with all generators. An appropriate choice for the Lie algebra basis and for the order of the generators in standard form, leads to algebraic closed formulae for the eigenvalues of the generalized Casimir operators upon highest weight states of irreducible representations. | ||

Solution method:From the Lie algebra structure constants (assumed to be integers), the metric tensor g is established first. Then, the transpose of the minor matrix of g is calculated with integer precision. Applying the formula defining invariants and also the ranging procedure leads to corresponding polynomial forms, such that in each term the generators of the Lie algebra basis elements occur in standard order. | ||

Restrictions:The same as for the program POLRANGE. Also the degree of the invariants is restricted to six. | ||

Running time:For 4th degree invariant of SU(3): 4 s. |
