AIM Team Maps E8



Congratulations to the Atlas team for their fine work in computing the Kazhdan-Lusztig-Vogan polynomials for the large block of the split real form of E8. AIM's popular overview can be found on their E8 page. For the wonderful details see the Atlas overview.

In addition to the E8 root system [axial view?],

there is a Crystalline Graph for E8 [saggital view?] at
http://www.aimath.org/E8/e8graphinfo.html

Perhaps using medical imaging related software [such as AsroMed] a 3D view of E8 can be computed [to include a coronal view?] as was done for '3D Universe' in USA Today: This Week in Space [image #6 of 11].

Hi Doug

Yes, an interactive 3D graph of the E8 Lie algebra structure would be a real treat.
