Abstract:
$F-$Lie algebras are natural generalisations of Lie algebras (F=1) and Lie superalgebras (F=2). When $F>2$ not many finite-dimensional examples are known. In this paper we construct finite-dimensional $F-$Lie algebras $F>2$ by an inductive process starting from Lie algebras and Lie superalgebras. Matrix realisations of $F-$Lie algebras constructed in this way from $\mathfrak{su}(n), \mathfrak{sp}(2n)$ $\mathfrak{so}(n)$ and $\mathfrak{sl}(n|m)$, $\mathfrak{osp}(2|m)$ are given. We obtain non-trivial extensions of the Poincar\'e algebra by In\"on\"u-Wigner contraction of certain $F-$Lie algebras with $F>2$.

Abstract:
Suppose that a finite group $G$ admits an automorphism $\varphi $ of order $2^n$ such that the fixed-point subgroup $C_G(\varphi ^{2^{n-1}})$ of the involution $\varphi ^{2^{n-1}}$ is nilpotent of class $c$. Let $m=|C_G(\varphi)|$ be the number of fixed points of $\varphi$. It is proved that $G$ has a characteristic soluble subgroup of derived length bounded in terms of $n,c$ whose index is bounded in terms of $m,n,c$. A similar result is also proved for Lie rings.

Abstract:
In one of our recent papers, the associative and the Lie algebras of Weyl type $A[D]=A\otimes F[D]$ were defined and studied, where $A$ is a commutative associative algebra with an identity element over a field $F$ of any characteristic, and $F[D]$ is the polynomial algebra of a commutative derivation subalgebra $D$ of $A$. In the present paper, a class of the above associative and Lie algebras $A[D]$ with $F$ being a field of characteristic 0, $D$ consisting of locally finite but not locally nilpotent derivations of $A$, are studied. The isomorphism classes and automorphism groups of these associative and Lie algebras are determined.

Abstract:
Inner ideals of simple locally finite dimensional Lie algebras over an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0 are described. In particular, it is shown that a simple locally finite dimensional Lie algebra has a non-zero proper inner ideal if and only if it is of diagonal type. Regular inner ideals of diagonal type Lie algebras are characterized in terms of left and right ideals of the enveloping algebra. Regular inner ideals of finitary simple Lie algebras are described.

Abstract:
We consider a class of infinite-dimensional, modular, graded Lie algebras, which includes the graded Lie algebra associated to the Nottingham group with respect to its lower central series. We identify two subclasses of Nottingham Lie algebras as loop algebras of finite-dimensional simple Lie algebras of Hamiltonian Cartan type. A property of Laguerre polynomials of derivations, which is related to toral switching, plays a crucial role in our constructions.

Abstract:
Toroidal Lie algebras are universal central extentions of the finite dimensional simple Lie algbera tensored with Laurent Polynomials in several commuteing variables. In this paper we classify irreducible integrable modules for Toroidal Lie algebras with finite dimensional wieght spaces. They are tensor product of evaluation modules for the finite dimensional Lie algebra when the center acts by zero. In the case when the center acts nontrivially they are tensor product of evalution representations of the underlying affine Lie algebra twisted by an automorphism of the Toroidal Lie algebras. The automorphisms come from genaral linear group with integer integers whose determinant 1 or -1.

Abstract:
We introduce and begin to study Lie theoretical analogs of symplectic reflection algebras for a finite cyclic group, which we call "cyclic double affine Lie algebra". We focus on type A : in the finite (resp. affine, double affine) case, we prove that these structures are finite (resp. affine, toroidal) type Lie algebras, but the gradings differ. The case which is essentially new involves $\mathbb{C}[u,v]$. We describe its universal central extensions and start the study of its representation theory, in particular of its highest weight integrable modules and Weyl modules. We also consider the first Weyl algebra $A_1$ instead of the polynomial ring $\mathbb{C}[u,v]$, and, more generally, a rank one rational Cherednik algebra. We study quasi-finite highest weight representations of these Lie algebras.

Abstract:
Borrowing some terminology from pro-p groups, thin Lie algebras are N-graded Lie algebras of width two and obliquity zero, generated in degree one. In particular, their homogeneous components have degree one or two, and they are termed diamonds in the latter case. In one of the two main subclasses of thin Lie algebras the earliest diamond after that in degree one occurs in degree 2q-1, where q is a power of the characteristic. This paper is a contribution to a classification project of this subclass of thin Lie algebras. Specifically, we prove that, under certain technical assumptions, the degree of the earliest diamond of finite type in such a Lie algebra can only have a certain form, which does occur in explicit examples constructed elsewhere.

Abstract:
We give a comprehensive survey of the theory of finite dimensional Lie algebras over an algebraically closed field of characteristic p>0 and announce that for p>3 the classification of finite dimensional simple Lie algebras is complete. Any such Lie algebra is up to isomorphism either classical (i.e. comes from characteristic 0) or a filtered Lie algebra of Cartan type or a Melikian algebra of characteristic 5.

Abstract:
This report aims at giving a general overview on the classification of the maximal subgroups of compact Lie groups (not necessarily connected). In the first part, it is shown that these fall naturally into three types: (1) those of trivial type, which are simply defined as inverse images of maximal subgroups of the corresponding component group under the canonical projection and whose classification constitutes a problem in finite group theory, (2) those of normal type, whose connected one-component is a normal subgroup, and (3) those of normalizer type, which are the normalizers of their own connected one-component. It is also shown how to reduce the classification of maximal subgroups of the last two types to: (2) the classification of the finite maximal $\Sigma$-invariant subgroups of center-free connected compact simple Lie groups and (3) the classification of the $\Sigma$-primitive subalgebras of compact simple Lie algebras, where $\Sigma$ is a subgroup of the corresponding outer automorphism group. In the second part, we explicitly compute the normalizers of the primitive subalgebras of the compact classical Lie algebras (in the corresponding classical groups), thus arriving at the complete classification of all (non-discrete) maximal subgroups of the compact classical Lie groups.
