A non-abelian tensor product of Lie algebras

  • Graham J. Ellis (a1)

Extract

A generalized tensor product of groups was introduced by R. Brown and J.-L. Loday [6], and has led to a substantial algebraic theory contained essentially in the following papers: [6, 7, 1, 5, 11, 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20, 23, 24] ([9, 27, 28] also contain results related to the theory, but are independent of Brown and Loday's work). It is clear that one should be able to develop an analogous theory of tensor products for other algebraic structures such as Lie algebras or commutative algebras. However to do so, many non-obvious algebraic identities need to be verified, and various topological proofs (which exist only in the group case) have to be replaced by purely algebraic ones. The work involved is sufficiently non-trivial to make it interesting.
