### Lie Algebra seminar, Fall 2016

In Fall 2016, there were few courses available at Mississippi State for mid-to-upper level students interested in Algebra, Combinatorics, and Topology. I oversaw a small seminar-type course on Lie Algebras. One undergraduate and one PhD student took the course for credit, and another PhD student audited the course seriously. We used the text *Introduction to Lie algebras* by Karin Erdmann and Mark Wildon. Students took turns lecturing and presenting exercises, and we made it through about the first 8 chapters of the textbook.
