Invariant theory of \(G_ 2\) and \(Spin_ 7\). (English) Zbl 0664.14006
Let G be a semisimple complex algebraic group. By an invariant theory for G the author understands a faithful representation V together with generators and relations for the algebra of invariants \({\mathbb{C}}[V\oplus...\oplus V]^ G\). He establishes such an invariant theory for types \(G_ 2\) and \(B_ 3\). This is closely connected with the Cayley algebra. To obtain the relations among generators, the author employs Poincaré series techniques.
