Does the quantum subgroup of quantum su_2 called E_8 have anything at all to do with the Lie algebra E_8?
The ordinary McKay correspondence relates the subgroups of SU(2) to the affine ADE Dynkin diagrams. The correspondence is that the vertices correspond to irreducible representations of the subgroup, ...
Consider the problem of classifying the finite groups of isometries of R^n. --For n=2 it is cyclic and dihedral groups. --For n=3 they are well known, probably from Kepler and are related to ...
