Order $3$ elements in $G_2$ and idempotents in symmetric composition algebras
Order three elements in the exceptional groups of type $G_2$ are classified up to conjugation over arbitrary fields. Their centralizers are computed, and the associated classification of idempotents in symmetric composition algebras is obtained. Idempotents have played a key role in the study and classification of these algebras. Over an algebraically closed field, there are two conjugacy classes of order three elements in $G_2$ in characteristic not $3$ and four of them in characteristic $3$. The centralizers in characteristic $3$ fail to be smooth for one of these classes.

Derivations and invariant forms of Lie algebras graded by finite root systems
Lie algebras graded by finite reduced root systems have been classified up to isomorphism. In this paper we describe the derivation algebras of these Lie algebras and determine when they possess invariant bilinear forms. The results which we develop to do this are much more general and apply to Lie algebras that are completely reducible with respect to the adjoint action of a finite-dimensional subalgebra.
