Simple left-symmetric algebras with¶solvable Lie algebra

  • Dietrich Burde


Left-symmetric algebras (LSAs) are Lie admissible algebras arising from geometry. The leftinvariant affine structures on a Lie group {G} correspond bijectively to LSA-structures on its Lie algebra. Moreover if a Lie group acts simply transitively as affine transformations on a vector space, then its Lie algebra admits a complete LSA-structure. In this paper we study simple LSAs having only trivial two-sided ideals. Some natural examples and deformations are presented. We classify simple LSAs in low dimensions and prove results about the Lie algebra of simple LSAs using a canonical root space decomposition. A special class of complete LSAs is studied.
