Universal formulae in Lie algebras and Chern-Simons theory
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Maciej Dunajski.
In 1990s Vogel introduced an interesting parametrisation of simple Lie algebras by 3 parameters defined up to common multiple and permutations. Numerical characteristic of Lie algebra is universal if it can be expressed rationally in terms of Vogel’s parameters (example – dimension of Lie algebra). I will present new universal formulae for certain Casimir eigenvalues as well as for some quantities in Chern-Simons theory on a 3D sphere, found jointly with Mkrtchyan and Sergeev.
