- I enclose two references for Vogel's work. This includes
all simple (super) Lie algebras so this is what I think of
as MOALA. However this is not the Freudenthal story (except
that both contain the third and fourth rows as lines).
- I was very interested in your book because I had discovered
much of it for myself. I think if I had not known what it was
about I would have struggled. It is not an easy story to explain
in writing. I have tried myself; not too successfully). I want
to work with the quantum groups so I can't really take
symmetric or antisymmetric invariant forms as my starting point.
There are also other series that you don't have and which I dont
really understand, for example the intermediate algebras of
Barton and Sudbury
0 C 2 x SL(2) SO(7)
and some series of super Lie algebras by Alberto Elduque.
