# The Submodule of Invariants

14 Jul

If $latex V$ is a module of a Lie algebra $latex L$, there is one submodule that turns out to be rather interesting: the submodule $latex V^0$ of vectors $latex v\in V$ such that $latex x\cdot v=0$ for all $latex x\in L$. We call these vectors "invariants" of $latex L$.

As an illustration of how interesting these are, consider the modules we looked at…
