QuasiLie Algebras and QuasiDeformations. Algebraic Structures Associated with Twisted Derivations
(2006) Abstract
 This thesis introduces a new deformation scheme for Lie algebras, which we refer to as ?quasideformations? to clearly distinguish it from the classical GrothendieckSchlessinger and Gerstenhaber deformation schemes. The main difference is that quasideformations are not in general categorypreserving, i.e., quasideforming a Lie algebra gives an object in the larger category of ?quasiLie algebras?, a notion which is also introduced in this thesis. The quasideformation scheme can be loosely described as follows: represent a Lie algebra by derivations acting on a commutative, associative algebra with unity and replace these derivations with twisted versions. An algebra structure is then imposed, thus arriving at the quasideformed... (More)
 This thesis introduces a new deformation scheme for Lie algebras, which we refer to as ?quasideformations? to clearly distinguish it from the classical GrothendieckSchlessinger and Gerstenhaber deformation schemes. The main difference is that quasideformations are not in general categorypreserving, i.e., quasideforming a Lie algebra gives an object in the larger category of ?quasiLie algebras?, a notion which is also introduced in this thesis. The quasideformation scheme can be loosely described as follows: represent a Lie algebra by derivations acting on a commutative, associative algebra with unity and replace these derivations with twisted versions. An algebra structure is then imposed, thus arriving at the quasideformed algebra. Therefore the quasideformation takes place on the level of representations: we ?deform? the representation, which is then ?pulledback? to an algebra structure.
The different Chapters of this thesis is concerned with different aspects of this quasideformation scheme, for instance: BurchnallChaundy theory for the qdeformed Heisenberg algebra (Chapter II), the (quasiLie) algebraic structure on the vector space of twisted derivations (Chapter III), deformed Witt, Virasoro and loop algebras (Chapter III and IV), Central extension theory (Chapter III and IV), the Lie algebra sl(2) and some associated quadratic algebras.
