The classification of the simple modular lie algebras: V. algebras with Hamiltonian two-sections

  • H. Strade


We investigate the structure of simple modular Lie algebrasL over an algebraically closed field of characteristic p > 7. Every optimal torusT in some p-envelope ofL defines uniquely a subalgebraQ(L, T) ofL. We classify all L, for whichQ(L, T) ≠ L and which have a two-section of typeH (2; 1;Ф(τ))(1)
