Abstract: For a given finite-type quiver , we will consider scalar-removed representations , where is a direct product of special linear algebraic groups and is the representation defined naturally by and a dimension vector . In this paper, we give a necessary and sufficient condition on that has only finitely many -orbits. This condition can be paraphrased as a condition concerning lattices of small rank spanned by positive roots of . To determine such scalar-removed representations having only finitely many orbits is very fundamental to the open problem of classification of the so-called semisimple finite prehomogeneous vector spaces. We consider everything over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero.
