Hayk Melikyan (North Carolina Central University) "New Variations on the Theme of Maximal Subalgebras"


The description of maximal subsystems of any algebraic system is an essential and important step toward the structural characterization of the system. In Lie Theory there are a number of well-known problems where the maximal subsystems play a crucial role.

In this talk we will discuss results and problems related to the classification of maximal sub-algebras in simple Lie algebras (superalgebras) over the fields of positive characteristics (which includes the classical simple Lie algebras and algebras (superalgebras) of Cartan type), and in-finite dimensional Lie algebras of Cartan over the field of characteristic zero.
