Sin has been the cause of all!
'Twas not thus before the fall:
What but pain, and thorn, and sting,
From the root of sin can spring?

And leaves the rest
To Him who counts not deeds alone,
But sees the root, the flower, the fruit,
And calls them one.

That thrill with gratefulness my youngest shoot!
The children playing round my deep-sunk root,
Green-caved from burning hours!

Strange glitterings upon his hands he found;
For to its roots clung dust of golden hue;
The flower grew
On golden treasure!

Like summer blossoms left by fickle winds,
And, taking root, spring up and flower, like hope

When life has depths worse than disease can reach,
And courage is the only root of beauty,
And it is this that draws us each to each.

In science:
We also take a set of simple roots Π0 ⊂ ∆0 and a root γ ∈ ∆1 such that the system Π0 ∪ {γ } is a set of simple roots for ∆.
Moore-Penrose inverse, parabolic subgroups, and Jordan pairs
The Bruhat decomposition for G(Kd ) implies that L is generated by the group H , the root subgroups in the ‘loop group’ G(Kd ) associated to the real aﬃne root whose root subspace in g ⊗ Kd is contained in g0 , and the elements in NGd (H × C× δ ) ﬁxing (1, µd ) and (s, τ 1/d ).
Induced and simple modules of double affine Hecke algebras
In general, this root lattice is an automorphism of the original root lattice of the same kind, obtained by a permutation of the roots.
Random matrix theory and symmetric spaces
In these equations the products denoted Qα∈R+ are over all the positive roots of the restricted root lattice and mα is the multiplicity of the root α.
Random matrix theory and symmetric spaces
Since we are mainly interested in rooted trees, we extend our deﬁnition as follows: A rooted R-tree, (X, d, ρ), is an R-tree (X, d) with a distinguished point ρ ∈ X that we call the root.
Rayleigh processes, real trees, and root growth with re-grafting
The tree (T , ρ) is a rooted Gromov-Hausdorff limit of ﬁnite R-trees with root ρ (indeed, any subtree spanned by a ﬁnite ε-net and ρ is ﬁnite and has rooted Gromov-Hausdorff distance less than ε from (T , ρ)).
Rayleigh processes, real trees, and root growth with re-grafting
Let T be a ﬁnite rooted tree with root ρ and metric d, and let T ′ and T ′′ be two rooted subtrees of T (both with the induced metrics and root ρ).
Rayleigh processes, real trees, and root growth with re-grafting
These Lie algebras are characterized by the existence of a symmetric nondegenerate invariant bilinear form, a ﬁnite dimensional Cartan subalgebra, a discrete root system which contains some nonisotropic roots, and the ad-nilpotency of the root spaces attached to non-isotropic roots.
Generalized reductive Lie algberas
To count these trees we use a known method (see, e.g., ) for relating labeled unrooted trees of various types to rooted trees: we subtract the edge-rooted versions from the vertex-rooted versions.

In the second line we used that each root α is paired with a negative root −α, and the zero roots do not contribute.

This along with the description of roots and coroots of M given above implies that the root datum of M can be written as a direct sum of two root data.
Generic Transfer for General Spin Groups
Conjugation by the element w ′ sends each positive root group with root in Σ(θ)+ − Σ(Ω)+ to a root group corresponding to a negative root and sends those with roots in Σ(Ω)+ to themselves.
Generic Transfer for General Spin Groups
Given a Lie algebra g, we ﬁx a Cartan subalgebra h. ∆ is the set of roots of g, ∆+ the positive roots, Π the set of simple roots, etc.
Constructing Graded Lie Algebras
The roots form a lattice in the space dual to the Cartan subalgebra. A subset of the positive roots span the root lattice.

Example: If the restricted root lattice is of type CN with long and ordinary roots, the positive roots are {ei ± ej , 2ei}.
