LieAlgebra -- class for Lie algebras

Description

This class represents Lie algebras. Currently only simple Lie algebras over the complex numbers are supported. An object of type LieAlgebra is a hash table whose keys record whether the Lie algebra is simple, the rank of the Lie algebra, and the type of the root system.

i1 : g=simpleLieAlgebra("A",1)

o1 = g

o1 : LieAlgebra
i2 : g=simpleLieAlgebra("E",6)

o2 = g

o2 : LieAlgebra
