Restricted Lie algebras with a $p$-nilpotent basis

Let $L$ be a finite-dimensional restricted Lie algebra over a field of characteristic $p>0$. An element $x$ of $L$ is called $p$-nilpotent if $x^{[p]^k}=0$ for some positive integer $k$. If $L$ is ...

Vanishing of power of nilpotent operator $\mathrm{ad} \, \;e$ in different characteritics

This question needs some background: (1) In his influential 1959 paper here, Kostant studied the adjoint representation of a simple Lie algebra $\mathfrak{g}$ over $\mathbb{C}$ (which can be ...

indecomposable modules restricted from $gl_n$ to $sl_n$

Let K be an algebraic closed field, $gl_n$ be the general linear Lie algebra over K, and $sl_n$ be the special linear Lie algebra. Let $\chi\in gl_n^*$. Let $U_\chi(gl_n)$ be the corresponding reduced ...

Computation of restricted Lie algebra (co)homology

My question is the following: Is there a small complex, perhaps analogous to the Chevalley-Eilenberg complex, computing the (co)homology of a restricted Lie algebra over a field of characteristic $...

hamilton type Lie algebras

If n be positive integer and for an n-tuple of positive integers m=(m1,...,mn) then p(n,m) is graded and filtered subalgebra of W(n,m).p(n,m) is called non-alternating hamilton lie algebra over GF(2). ...

Maximal dimension of abelian ideals of a Lie algebra and extensions of the ground field

For a Lie algebra $L$ of dimension $n$ over a field ${\mathbb F}$ we denote by $\beta(L)$ the maximal dimension of abelian ideals of $L$. In general, $\beta(L)$ is not preserved under extensions of ...

Can the projection (tensor algebra) -> (symmetric algebra) be forced to split in char. p by factoring out p-th powers?

Question 1 (the weak and simple statement, which, I think, already is wrong): Let $p$ be a prime. Let $k$ be a field with characteristic $p$. For any $k$-vector space $V$, consider the canonical ...
