Uniqueness of Addition in Lie Algebras of Chevalley Type over Rings with 1/2 and 1/3
In this paper, it is proved that Lie algebras of Chevalley type (An, Bn, Cn, Dn, E6, E7, E8, F4, and G2) over associative commutative rings with 1/2 (with 1/2 and 1/3 in the case of G2) have unique addition. As a corollary of this theorem, we note the uniqueness of addition in semisimple Lie algebras of Chevalley type over fields of characteristic ≠ 2 (≠ 2, 3 in the case of G2).
