Specifically, for the Dynkin Simple groups of Lie type and in of characteristic two, there is a projective Dynkin diagram automorphism of order two that swaps the long and short roots, which induces a automorphism of the Chevalley group which is order two modulo a Frobenius map in that is given by the Frobenius map ; see the for the construction. A fundamental domain of this space is the Weyl alcovein which for positive roots and for the maximal root ; this is a simplex in the Weyl chamber consisting entirely of non-integral elements, such that the reflection along any of the faces of the alcove lies inwhich shows that it is indeed a fundamental domain.

Call an element of regular if it is conjugate under the adjoint action Simple groups of Lie type to a regular element of and hence, by the Weyl group action, to an element in the interior of the adjoint of the Weyl chamber ; this conjugation element can be viewed as an element ofwhich is unique by the discussion in the previous section. Simple Lie groups include manywhich provide a group-theoretic underpinning forand related geometries in the sense of 's.
For instance, is associated with the projective special linear group as its adjoint form and the special linear group as its simply connected form, and intermediate groups can be created by quotienting out by some subgroup of its centre which is isomorphic to the roots of unity. The theory was clarified by the theory ofand the work of on Lie algebras, by means of which the Chevalley group concept was isolated.
Proof: Let be a normal subgroup of that lies in. It is only when the field and the Dynkin diagram are extremely small that one has too few commutators to make a generating subset, and fails to be perfect and thus also fails to be simple ; the specific failures turn out to be,and.
On the other hand, as is a fundamental domain forwe see that each right coset of in has exactly one representative for whichso we have obtained a bijective correspondence between and. Simple groups of Lie type is now of interest to understand the fundamental group of the adjoint formas this measures the gap between and and will classify all the intermediate forms of the Lie group associated to as these all arise from quotienting by some subgroup of. Simple Lie groups over — We begin with some discussion of Lie groups over the complex numbers.
The name "groups of Lie type" is due to the close relationship with the infinitesince a may be viewed as the rational points of a reductive linear algebraic group over the field of. If is a connected constructible subset of containing the identity, then the group generated by is closed and is thus a linear algebraic group and also irreducible.
The claim then follows from Theorem. This exact sequence shows what you described in the real case. This generalises the discussion of complex Lie groups in the previous section, except now we do not need to pass through the simplicity of the associated Lie algebra and instead work with the irreducibility of the root system.
Set of Cayley hyperbolic planes in the hyperbolic plane over the complexified Cayley numbers.
The set of non-integral elements of is a collection of open polytopes, and is acted upon by the group of affine transformations generated by the Weyl group and translations by elements of the coroot lattice.
Actually, as it turns out, for all Lie algebras other than the family, the fundamental group is very small, having order at most ; see below.
