Introduction to McKay's correspondence Frederic Palesi 6th march 2006 Introduction Our purpose in this paper is to introduce the Mc Kay's correspondence which associates to each finite subgroups of SU2(C) (the cyclic groups, the binary diedral groups, the binary tetraedral group, the binary octaedral group and the binary icosaedral group), a simple Lie algebra. We will see that when we calculate the character table of these groups, we can construct a graph which will be similar to the Dynkin diagram of a simple Lie algebra of standard type An, Dn, E6, E7 and E8. In the first part we will study the structure of the subgroups of SU2(C) . In the second part we will calculate character tables and McKay's graphs. And in the last part, we will see a way to find the other Dynkin diagrams of type Bn, Cn, F4, G2 1
