Centralizers in Jacobson-Witt Lie algebras

Recall the (Jacobson-)Witt Lie algebras in positive characteristic: $W(n,1)$ is the Lie algebra of derivations of $\Bbbk[X_1,\dots,X_n]/(X_1^p,\dots,X_n^p)$. (For simplicity; more generally, I'm ...

Restricted Lie algebras with no nonzero proper restricted subalgebras

Let $L\neq 0$ be a restricted Lie algebra over a field $F$ of characteristic $p>0$. If $F$ is algebraically closed, then it is known that $L$ has no nontrivial restricted subalgebras if and only ...

Restricted universal extensions and lifting of derivations

Let $L$ be a perfect Lie algebra. Then it is well-known that $L$ has a universal central extension $\hat{L}$ and every derivation of $L$ can be lifted to a derivation of $\hat{L}$. (See e.g. Section 2 ...

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 ...

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 ...
