Classification of Five-Dimensional Lie Algebras with One-Dimensional Subalgebras Acting as Subalgebras of the Lorentz Algebra
by Rozum, Jordan, M.S., Utah State University, 2016, 186; 10007630
Abstract (Summary)

Motivated by A. Z. Petrov's classification of four-dimensional Lorentzian metrics, we provide an algebraic classification of the isometry-isotropy pairs of four-dimensional pseudo-Riemannian metrics admitting local slices with five-dimensional isometries contained in the Lorentz algebra. A purely Lie algebraic approach is applied with emphasis on the use of Lie theoretic invariants to distinguish invariant algebra-subalgebra pairs. This method yields an algorithm for identifying isometry-isotropy pairs subject to the aforementioned constraints.
