**(1) Is there a notion of Cartan matrix for non-semisimple Lie algebra?**

For example, consider this Lie algebra:

$$

[X_i, X_j] = f_{ij}{}^k X_k \qquad\qquad [X_i,Y^j] = – f_{ik}{}^j Y^k \qquad\qquad [Y^i,Y^j] = 0

$$

Here, for example, consider 3 generators $X_1,X_2,X_3$ generate a compact semi-simple SU(2) Lie algebra with $f_{ij}{}^k$ given by $f_{12}{}^3=1$ and $f_{23}{}^1=-1$ as $i,j,k$ are cyclic. And another 3 generators $Y^1,Y^2,Y^3$ are Abelian extension of $X_1,X_2,X_3$. (Some people would use the words semi-direct product for the groups $g(X) \ltimes g(Y)^*$.)

- Every Transitive Permutation Group Has a Fixed Point Free Element
- Proof that no permutation can be expressed both as the product of an even number of transpositions and as a product of an odd number of transpositions
- Automorphism group of the Alternating Group - a proof
- Are groups with all the same Hom sets already isomorphic?
- Trying to Prove that $H=\langle a,b:a^{3}=b^{3}=(ab)^{3}=1\rangle$ is a Group of Infinite Order
- Known bounds for the number of groups of a given order.

**(2) What is the Cartan matrix for this Lie algebra above?** (for this whole non-semisimple Lie algebra $g(X) \ltimes g(Y)^*$.)
