There will be an Algebra Seminar on Friday 4 November, given by Donald Barnes. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Speaker: Donald Barnes (University of Sydney) Date: Friday 4 November Time: 12:05-12:55pm Venue: Carslaw 175 Title: Faithful representations of Leibniz algebras Abstract: The Ado-Iwasawa Theorem asserts that for a finite-dimensional Lie algebra, there exists a faithful finite-dimensional module. I shall prove that for a finite-dimensional Leibniz algebra of dimension n, there exists a faithful module of dimension less than or equal to n+1. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Anne Thomas - anne.thomas@sydney.edu.au Seminar website - http://www.maths.usyd.edu.au/u/AlgebraSeminar/
