The theory of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras differs markedly from the theory of finite-dimensional Lie algebras in that the latter possesses powerful classification theo rems, which usually allow one to "recognize" any finite dimensional Lie algebra (over the field of complex or real numbers), i.e., find it.

A very useful source to learn about cohomology of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras is the book by "Cohomology of Infinite-Dimensional Lie Algebras" (shocking, I know).

This source discusses Lie algebras of vector fields on manifolds, and applies the Hochschild-Serre spectral sequence in several different contexts. Prerequisites for the book are metric spaces, a second course in linear algebra and a bit of knowledge about topological groups.

It is one of the three best books I've read on the cohomology theory of Lie algebras (the other two are D.

Infinite-dimensional Lie. The study of the cohomology for the Lie algebra X(M) of vector fields on a manifold M was initiated by I.M. Gelfand and D.B. Fuks in Now it is a large branch of the cohomology theory of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras with specific methods of investigation.

The main. Affine Lie algebras from simple Lie algebras Definition. If is a finite dimensional simple Lie algebra, the corresponding affine Lie algebra ^ is constructed as a central extension of the infinite-dimensional Lie algebra ⊗ [, −], with one-dimensional center. As a vector space, ^ = ⊗ [, −] ⊕, where [, −] is the complex vector space of Laurent polynomials in the indeterminate t.

order to have the Jacobi identity in the deformed Lie algebra up to order k. If the Jacobi identity is satisﬁed to all orders, we will call it a true (for-mal) deformation, see Fuchs’ book [5] for details on cohomology and [2] for deformations of Lie algebras.

In section 3 we discuss Massey products, in section 4 describe all true. Lie algebras have many varied applications, both in mathematics and mathematical physics. This book provides a thorough but relaxed mathematical treatment of the subject, including both the Cartan-Killing-Weyl theory of finite dimensional simple algebras and the more modern theory of Kac-Moody algebras.

Proofs are given in detail and the only prerequisite is a sound knowledge of linear algebra. Gelfand-Fuchs cohomology, also called continuous cohomology, is an interesting relative of the ordinary cohomology of a Lie algebra or Lie group devised by Gelfand and Fuchs [1] for tractable computations.

He has also authored a book on the cohomology of infinite dimensional Lie algebras [4] where one can find most of the known results and. The Lie algebras here are either infinite-dimensional, are defined over fields of finite characteristic, or are actually Lie superalgebras or quantum groups.

Among the topics covered here are generalizations of the Virasoro algebra, representation theory of the Virasoro algebra and of Kac-Moody algebras, cohomology of Lie algebras of vector. The theory of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras differs markedly from the theory of finite-dimensional Lie algebras in that the latter possesses powerful classification theo rems, which usually allow one to "recognize" any finite dimensional Lie algebra (over the field of complex or real numbers), i.e., find it in some list.

This book provides an introduction to the cohomology theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras and to some of its applications in physics.

The mathematical topics covered include the differential geometry of Lie groups, fibre bundles and connections, characteristic classes, index theorems, extensions of Lie groups and algebras, Chevalley - Eilenberg cohomology of Lie algebras, symplectic Author: P Bouwknegt.

For Lie algebras that are linearly infinite-dimensional, i.e. possess a Z-grading by finite-dimensional vector spaces, and positive and negative degrees are isomorphic, things are not too bad; you just have to replace loop algebras by their central extensions, the affine Kac-Moody algebras.
