An Algebraic Construction of Lorentz Homogeneous Spaces of Low Dimension
Dept. of Mathematics, University of California, La Jolla, CA 92093, U.S.A.
We give an elementary algebraic construction of all real Lorentz homogeneous spaces of dimensions two and three. We use basic algebraic techniques to construct reductive Lie algebra pairs for each Lorentz homogeneous space.
Keywords: Lie algebra actions, Lorentz homogeneous spaces.
