The next algebra seminar will be given by Donald Barnes. His title and abstract are below. Note that from now on we will be meeting at Carslaw 175, at the regular time of 12 noon. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Speaker: Donald Barnes (University of Sydney) Date: Friday 4th March Time: 12.05-12.55pm Venue: Carslaw 175 Title: Leibniz algebras Abstract: Leibniz algebras are a generalisation of Lie algebras. Many results for Lie algebras generalise to Leibniz algebras, but there are some interesting differences. My talk will be mostly about soluble Leibniz algebras. It will assume a little basic knowledge of Lie algebras. ---------------------------------------------------------------------
