Functions on this page are joint work with **Hamid Mohammadzadeh**, and implemented by him.

`‣ LieCoveringHomomorphism` ( L ) | ( function ) |

Inputs a finite dimensional Lie algebra L over a field, and returns a surjective Lie homomorphism phi : C→ L where:

the kernel of phi lies in both the centre of C and the derived subalgebra of C,

the kernel of phi is a vector space of rank equal to the rank of the second Chevalley-Eilenberg homology of L.

**Examples:** 1

`‣ LeibnizQuasiCoveringHomomorphism` ( L ) | ( function ) |

Inputs a finite dimensional Lie algebra L over a field, and returns a surjective homomorphism phi : C→ L of Leibniz algebras where:

the kernel of phi lies in both the centre of C and the derived subalgebra of C,

the kernel of phi is a vector space of rank equal to the rank of the kernel J of the homomorphism L ⊗ L → L from the tensor square to L. (We note that, in general, J is NOT equal to the second Leibniz homology of L.)

**Examples:**

`‣ LieEpiCentre` ( L ) | ( function ) |

Inputs a finite dimensional Lie algebra L over a field, and returns an ideal Z^∗(L) of the centre of L. The ideal Z^∗(L) is trivial if and only if L is isomorphic to a quotient L=E/Z(E) of some Lie algebra E by the centre of E.

**Examples:** 1

`‣ LieExteriorSquare` ( L ) | ( function ) |

Inputs a finite dimensional Lie algebra L over a field. It returns a record E with the following components.

E.homomorphism is a Lie homomorphism µ : (L ∧ L) ⟶ L from the nonabelian exterior square (L ∧ L) to L. The kernel of µ is the Lie multiplier.

E.pairing(x,y) is a function which inputs elements x, y in L and returns (x ∧ y) in the exterior square (L ∧ L) .

**Examples:**

`‣ LieTensorSquare` ( L ) | ( function ) |

Inputs a finite dimensional Lie algebra L over a field and returns a record T with the following components.

T.homomorphism is a Lie homomorphism µ : (L ⊗ L) ⟶ L from the nonabelian tensor square of L to L.

T.pairing(x,y) is a function which inputs two elements x, y in L and returns the tensor (x ⊗ y) in the tensor square (L ⊗ L) .

**Examples:**

`‣ LieTensorCentre` ( L ) | ( function ) |

Inputs a finite dimensional Lie algebra L over a field and returns the largest ideal N such that the induced homomorphism of nonabelian tensor squares (L ⊗ L) ⟶ (L/N ⊗ L/N) is an isomorphism.
