Definition
Let $G$ be a Lie group which is compact and connected . Write $T \hookrightarrow G$ for the maximal torus subgroup .

Definition
For $\rho : G \to Aut(V)$ a representation of $G$ , and for $\alpha : T \to Aut(\mathbb{C})$ a weight, the weight space of $\rho$ with respect to $\alpha$ is the subspace of $V$ which as a representation of $T$ is a direct sum of $\alpha$ -s.

Properties
For connected compact Lie groups
For connected compact Lie groups the
