A 4 3 -grading on a 56 -dimensional simple structurable algebra and related fine gradings on the simple Lie algebras of type E

Diego Aranda-Orna, Alberto Elduque, Mikhail Kochetov (2014)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

We describe two constructions of a certain 4 3 -grading on the so-called Brown algebra (a simple structurable algebra of dimension 56 and skew-dimension 1 ) over an algebraically closed field of characteristic different from 2 . The Weyl group of this grading is computed. We also show how this grading gives rise to several interesting fine gradings on exceptional simple Lie algebras of types E 6 , E 7 and E 8 .

A general approach to finite-dimensional division algebras

Ernst Dieterich (2012)

Colloquium Mathematicae

We present a short and rather self-contained introduction to the theory of finite-dimensional division algebras, setting out from the basic definitions and leading up to recent results and current directions of research. In Sections 2-3 we develop the general theory over an arbitrary ground field k, with emphasis on the trichotomy of fields imposed by the dimensions in which a division algebra exists, the groupoid structure of the level subcategories 𝒟ₙ(k), and the role played by the irreducible...

A non-abelian tensor product of Leibniz algebra

Allahtan Victor Gnedbaye (1999)

Annales de l'institut Fourier

Leibniz algebras are a non-commutative version of usual Lie algebras. We introduce a notion of (pre)crossed Leibniz algebra which is a simultaneous generalization of notions of representation and two-sided ideal of a Leibniz algebra. We construct the Leibniz algebra of biderivations on crossed Leibniz algebras and we define a non-abelian tensor product of Leibniz algebras. These two notions are adjoint to each other. A (co)homological characterization of these new algebraic objects enables us to...

A non-semiprime associative algebra with zero weak radical.

Abdelfattah Haily (1997)

Extracta Mathematicae

The weak radical, W-Rad(A) of a non-associative algebra A, has been introduced by A. Rodríguez Palacios in [3] in order to generalize the Johnson's uniqueness of norm theorem to general complete normed non-associative algebras (see also [2] for another application of this notion). In [4], he showed that if A is a semiprime non-associative algebra with DCC on ideals, then W-Rad(A) = 0. In the first part of this paper we give an example of a non-semiprime associative algebra A with DCC on ideals and...

A review on δ-structurable algebras

Noriaki Kamiya, Daniel Mondoc, Susumu Okubo (2011)

Banach Center Publications

In this paper we give a review on δ-structurable algebras. A connection between Malcev algebras and a generalization of δ-structurable algebras is also given.

A symplectic representation of E 7

Tevian Dray, Corinne A. Manogue, Robert A. Wilson (2014)

Commentationes Mathematicae Universitatis Carolinae

We explicitly construct a particular real form of the Lie algebra 𝔢 7 in terms of symplectic matrices over the octonions, thus justifying the identifications 𝔢 7 𝔰𝔭 ( 6 , 𝕆 ) and, at the group level, E 7 Sp ( 6 , 𝕆 ) . Along the way, we provide a geometric description of the minimal representation of 𝔢 7 in terms of rank 3 objects called cubies.
