Traces in SL(3,C) and SU(2,1) Groups

Full Text PDF

Abstract:

In this paper we prove some trace identities in SL(3,C) and SU(2,1) groups. We also present the merits on how to parametrise pair of pants via traces and cross-ratio. Finally, we compute traces of matrices that are generated by complex reflections in complex triangle groups.
