Abstract Share this page

Biparabolic subalgebras of semisimple Lie algebras were introduced by V. Dergachev and A. Kirillov [V. Dergachev, A. Kirillov, Index of Lie algebras of seaweed type, J. Lie Theory 10 (2000) 331–343] under the name of Lie algebras of seaweed type. Let q be such an algebra, q′ its derived algebra, t its nilradical and S(q) the symmetric algebra over q. Now q is algebraic, so by a result of Chevalley–Dixmier [J. Dixmier, Sur les représentations unitaires des groupes de Lie nilpotents. II, Bull. Soc. Math. France 85 (1957) 325–388], index q=trdeg(FractSq(q)). Here we give a combinatorial formula for index q and use it to prove a conjecture of P. Tauvel and R.W.T. Yu [P. Tauvel R.W.T. Yu, Sur l'indice de certaines algèbres de Lie, Ann. Inst. Fourier (Grenoble) 54 (2004) 1793–1810]. We also compute the Gelfand–Kirillov dimension of Sq′(q), an algebra we conjecture to be polynomial.
