Components of adjoint representations

  1. Feb 10, 2015 #1
    In the way of defining the adjoint representation,
    [tex]
    \mathrm{ad}_XY=[X,Y],
    [/tex]
    where [itex]X,Y[/itex] are elements of a Lie algebra, how to determine the components of its representation, which equals to the structure constant?
