Hi everyone, I’ve include the code for drawing Dynkin diagrams using Tikz package in LaTeX

\begin{center}
\begin{tikzpicture}[scale=.4]
\draw (-1,0) node[anchor=east] {$A_n$};
\foreach \x in {0,...,5}
\draw[xshift=\x cm,thick] (\x cm,0) circle (.3cm);
\draw[dotted,thick] (0.3 cm,0) -- +(1.4 cm,0);
\foreach \y in {1.15,...,4.15}
\draw[xshift=\y cm,thick] (\y cm,0) -- +(1.4 cm,0);
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{center}
\begin{center}
\begin{tikzpicture}[scale=.4]
\draw (-1,0) node[anchor=east] {$B_n$};
\foreach \x in {0,...,4}

\draw[xshift=5 cm,thick,fill=black] (5 cm, 0) circle (.3 cm);
\draw[dotted,thick] (0.3 cm,0) -- +(1.4 cm,0);
\foreach \y in {1.15,...,3.15}
\draw[xshift=\y cm,thick] (\y cm,0) -- +(1.4 cm,0);
