Unformatted text preview: algebras by means of an example: the Lie algebra Vec( ) of vector fields on the line. Since the objects involved are quite concrete, no prior knowledge of Lie algebras will be assumed: only basic calculus and linear algebra. Dr. Conley received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles and is currently an Associate Professor at the University of North Texas where he conducts research on two types of complex Lie algebras: finite dimensional semisimple Lie algebras, and infinite dimensional Lie algebras of vector fields such as the Virasoro Lie algebra .
