DynkinType -- the class of Dynkin Types


A Dynkin Type is a list of items representing Dynkin types of irreducible root systems. These types are a string (the letter representing the family A, B, C, D, E, F or G) and an integer, the rank.

i1 : R=rootSystemB(4)++rootSystemA(6)

o1 = RootSystem{...8...}

o1 : RootSystem
i2 : dynkinType(R)

o2 = DynkinType{{A, 6}, {B, 4}}

o2 : DynkinType
