Representation theory of Lie groups | Lie groups

Adjoint representation

In mathematics, the adjoint representation (or adjoint action) of a Lie group G is a way of representing the elements of the group as linear transformations of the group's Lie algebra, considered as a vector space. For example, if G is , the Lie group of real n-by-n invertible matrices, then the adjoint representation is the group homomorphism that sends an invertible n-by-n matrix to an endomorphism of the vector space of all linear transformations of defined by: . For any Lie group, this natural representation is obtained by linearizing (i.e. taking the differential of) the action of G on itself by conjugation. The adjoint representation can be defined for linear algebraic groups over arbitrary fields. (Wikipedia).

10 Adjoint state method

We show the connection between the method of adjoints in optimal control to the implicit function theorem ansatz. We relate the costate or adjoint state variable to Lagrange multipliers.

Adjugate Matrix

In this video, I define the notion of adjugate matrix and use it to calculate A-1 using determinants. This is again beautiful in theory, but inefficient in examples. Adjugate matrix example: Check out my Determinants Playlist:

Graph Representation with an Adjacency Matrix | Graph Theory, Adjaceny Matrices

How do we represent graphs using adjacency matrices? That is the subject of today's graph theory lesson! We will take a graph and use an adjacency matrix to represent it! It is a most soulless, but at times useful, graph representation. An adjacency matrix has a row and a column for each

Adjoint / Daggered Operators in Quantum Mechanics

In this video, we will explain adjoint operators in quantum mechanics. First of all, for any operator A, we can define its adjoint, A-dagger, via this equation. The idea behind this is, that while operators in quantum mechanics usually act towards the right, adjoint operators act to the le
