Recall that a certain type of object admits an ADE classification if there is a notion of equivalence relative to which equivalence classes of objects of the given type can be placed in one-to-one ...
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, ...
The ADE type Dynkin diagrams seem to come up in seemingly different areas of math. Two places they come up are: (1) Classification of simply laced complex simple lie algebras. (2) Finite subgroups ...
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 ...
