Contents:
Simple Lie Algebras over Fieldsof Positive Characteristic; Contents; Introduction; Chapter 1Toral subalgebras in p-envelopes; Chapter 2Lie algebras of special derivations; Chapter 3Derivation simple algebras and modules; Chapter 4Simple Lie algebras; Chapter 5Recognition theorems; Chapter 6The isomorphism problem; Chapter 7Structure of simple Lie algebras; Chapter 8Pairings of induced modules; Chapter 9Toral rank 1 Lie algebras; Notation; Bibliography; Index.
Summary: The problem of classifying the finite-dimensional simple Lie algebras over fields of characteristic p & 0 is a long-standing one. Work on this question during the last 35 years has been directed by the Kostrikin-Shafarevich Conjecture of 1966, which states that over an algebraically closed field of characteristic p & 5 a finite-dimensional restricted simple Lie algebra is classical or of Cartan type.
