Satake diagrams and restricted root systems of semisimple pseudo-Riemannian symmetric spaces. (English) Zbl 1191.53033

The paper completes the list of Satake diagrams and restricted root systems for classical semisimple pseudo-Riemannian symmetric spaces, including signatures of roots. A similar work is planned for the exceptional types.
