Contractions of Lie algebras and algebraic groups

Dietrich Burde (2007)

Archivum Mathematicum

Degenerations, contractions and deformations of various algebraic structures play an important role in mathematics and physics. There are many different definitions and special cases of these notions. We try to give a general definition which unifies these notions and shows the connections among them. Here we focus on contractions of Lie algebras and algebraic groups.

Enveloping algebras of Slodowy slices and the Joseph ideal

Alexander Premet (2007)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

Let G be a simple algebraic group over an algebraically closed field 𝕜 of characteristic 0, and 𝔤 = Lie G . Let ( e , h , f ) be an 𝔰 𝔩 2 -triple in 𝔤 with e being a long root vector in 𝔤 . Let ( · , · ) be the G -invariant bilinear form on 𝔤 with ( e , f ) = 1 and let χ 𝔤 * be such that χ ( x ) = ( e , x ) for all x 𝔤 . Let 𝒮 be the Slodowy slice at e through the adjoint orbit of e and let H be the enveloping algebra of 𝒮 ; see [31]. In this article we give an explicit presentation of H by generators and relations. As a consequence we deduce that H contains an ideal...

From Poisson algebras to Gerstenhaber algebras

Yvette Kosmann-Schwarzbach (1996)

Annales de l'institut Fourier

Constructing an even Poisson algebra from a Gerstenhaber algebra by means of an odd derivation of square 0 is shown to be possible in the category of Loday algebras (algebras with a non-skew-symmetric bracket, generalizing the Lie algebras, heretofore called Leibniz algebras in the literature). Such “derived brackets” give rise to Lie brackets on certain quotient spaces, and also on certain Abelian subalgebras. The construction of these derived brackets explains the origin of the Lie bracket on...

Maximal solvable extensions of filiform algebras

Libor Šnobl (2011)

Archivum Mathematicum

It is already known that any filiform Lie algebra which possesses a codimension 2 solvable extension is naturally graded. Here we present an alternative derivation of this result.
