Lie Algebras of Maximal Class with Polynomial Multiplication
Dept. of Mathematical and Computational Sciences, University of Toronto, 3359 Mississauga Road N., Mississauga, On L5L 1C6, Canada
We prove that over an algebraically closed field F of zero characteristic an N-graded Lie algebra of maximal class with polynomial multiplication is isomorphic to W+, the positive part of the Witt algebra, or to a certain subalgebra of W+.
Keywords: Lie algebras of maximal class, N-graded Lie algebras, polynomial multiplication, filiform Lie algebras.
