    I sure wish I had studied a bit of Lie Algebra so that I might at least have a clue as to what they are all talking about!!!

    How about some AESToE for Dummies?

    50 years ago I took a course in "modern algebra" and Sophus Lie was in there.
    The stuff these guys are doing is far-removed from anything I ever remember seeing.
    The symbols are also confusing. But then, I don't pretend to be a mathematician....
    I'd rather be whatever it is that I am. Confused, most likely.

    Triality - I thought that was a proceeding with a judge, a jury and a gallows out back behind the courthouse in Crawford TX -- not a flavor of fermions.

    :biggrin:

    Are subalgebras really just submatrices that meet specific criteria?.
