Could anyone recommend a good book on Lie Algebras for self-study? I need to deeply understand Dynkin diagrams and classification of algebras.

Other question: does anybody know a book on problems of Lie Groups or Lie Algebras?

Thank you.

Check this out http://arxiv.org/abs/0711.3447

Though, it's a paper on E6 and its subgroups, it also gives a very nice summary/ introduction on Lie groups and algebras and their classification.
