Algebras and Lie Groups

  • Boris Rosenfeld
Part of the Mathematics and Its Applications book series (MAIA, volume 393)


In 0.1.7 we have defined n-algebras, that is, rings that are linear spaces L n satisfying the axiom A.1° (0.13). In 0.1.7 we mentioned that the field ℂ of complex numbers is a commutative associative 2-algebra with basis e 0 = 1, e l = i (i 2 = −1).
