Can I bring the Kirillov 2-form on coadjoint orbits to adjoint orbits?

I tried asking this question on stackexchange and received no response. Given a semisimple Lie group, there is a symplectic structure on the coadjoint orbits arising from the Kirillov 2-form. Can I ...

“Signature Changing” Generalization of Lie Algebra?

I have in mind a mathematical structure I've never heard of before. Does anyone know what might be? It is a manifold with vector fields whose Lie brackets have structure coefficients that are ...

Projections of orbifolds

A while back I came across orbifolds, in particular the quotients $SU(2)/U(1)\cong S^2$, $SU(3)/(SU(2)\times U(1)\cong \mathbb{C}P^2$ and $SU(3)/(U(1)\times U(1))$. The way I needed them, was as an ...

A representation similar to coadjoint representation?

In a project of quantization, I come up with a finite dimensional representation of $so(d)$ that I wish to find some decent references for it. I guess it could have been studied thoroughly in ...

The set of leaves of the distribution $D$ on coadjoint orbit $O_{\mu}$

Let $G$ be a compact connected Lie group and $O_{\mu}$ be a coadjoint orbit where $\mu\in \mathfrak{g}^*$ and $\mathfrak{g}^*$ is the dual of the Lie algebra of $\mathfrak{g}=\mathrm{Lie}(G)$. Let $...
