A course of pure mathematics by G. H. Hardy

By G. H. Hardy

There may be few textbooks of arithmetic as famous as Hardy's natural arithmetic. in view that its book in 1908, it's been a vintage paintings to which successive generations of budding mathematicians have became at first in their undergraduate classes. In its pages, Hardy combines the keenness of a missionary with the rigor of a purist in his exposition of the basic principles of the differential and quintessential calculus, of the homes of limitless sequence and of alternative themes regarding the concept of restrict.

A morphism u : (V, f ) → (W, g) of representations is a linear map such that gu = uf : it intertwines f and g. Clearly, giving such a pair (V, f ) is equivalent to equipping V with a k[X]-module structure where the action of X on an element v ∈ V is given by X · v = f (v). In particular, Rep k (Q0 ) k[X]-Mod . There is an obvious simple representation of Q0 , namely S = (k, 0). More generally however, for any λ ∈ k the representation Sλ = (k, mλ ) where mλ (x) = λx is a simple one. Thus, there are at least as much simple representations as there are elements of k.

In total, we find ν m1 n1 +m2 n2 −m1 n2 {[I]k(m1 ,m2 ) , [J]k(n1 ,n2 ) }e = δIJ ν2 − 1 where I, J are indecomposable representations of A2 , so S1 , S2 or I12 , and mi , ni ∈ Z. 3 Intermezzo: quantum groups In this short intermezzo we describe how to obtain the Kac-Moody algebra associated to a quiver without loops. Furthermore, we give a presentation of the quantised universal enveloping algebra of a simply-laced Kac-Moody Lie algebra in terms of generators and relations; this is a quantum group.

Convention. From now on, we will only consider finite-dimensional nilpotent representations of quivers without loops. Instead of sticking to the more correct rep nil k (Q) for this category, we will slightly abuse notation and simply write A = Rep k (Q). In summary, this is a k-linear finitary hereditary abelian Krull-Schmidt category. In particular, the dimension vector dim : K (Rep k Q) −→ R, M → dim(M ) = dim(Mi )αi i∈Q0 establishes an isomorphism of Z-modules mapping the symmetrised Euler form (−, −)a onto the Cartan-Killing form of the root lattice R of the Kac-Moody algebra associated to Q.
