Abstract: In this thesis, we use finite semisimple Lie theory to compute the structure of a local symmetric space p and its corresponding symmetric space P. Helminck classifies the local symmetric spaces over algebraically closed fields in [Hel88]. Here I extend these first results and write algorithms that implement combinatorial methods to compute `"nice" bases, restricted root systems, multiplicities and restricted Weyl groups for these spaces.
