  In mathematics, a Chevalley basis for a simple complex Lie algebra is a basis constructed by Claude Chevalley with the property that all structure constants are integers. Chevalley used these bases to construct analogues of Lie groups over finite fields, called Chevalley groups. The Chevalley basis is the CartanWeyl basis, but with a different normalization.

  In mathematics, a Chevalley basis for a simple complex Lie algebra is a basis constructed by Claude Chevalley with the property that all structure constants are integers. Chevalley used these bases to construct analogues of Lie groups over finite fields, called Chevalley groups. The Chevalley basis is the CartanWeyl basis, but with a different normalization. The generators of a Lie group are split into the generators H and E indexed by simple roots and their negatives . The CartanWeyl basis may be written as Defining the dual root or coroot of as One may perform a change of basis to define The Cartan integers are The resulting relations among the generators are the following: where in the last relation is the greatest positive integer such that is a root and we consider if is not a root. For determining the sign in the last relation one fixes an ordering of roots which respects addition, i.e., if then provided that all four are roots. We then call an extraspecial pair of roots if they are both positive and is minimal among all that occur in pairs of positive roots satisfying . The sign in the last relation can be chosen arbitrarily whenever is an extraspecial pair of roots. This then determines the signs for all remaining pairs of roots.
