Automorphisms and Derivations of Leibniz Algebras

  • M. Ladra
  • I. M. Rikhsiboev
  • R. M. Turdibaev

We extend some general properties of automorphisms and derivations known for the Lie algebras to finite-dimensional complex Leibniz algebras. The analogs of the Jordan–Chevalley decomposition for derivations and the multiplicative decomposition for automorphisms of finite-dimensional complex Leibniz algebras are obtained.
