Metric Symplectic Lie Algebras
Institut für Mathematik und Informatik, Walther-Rathenau-Strasse 47, 17487 Greifswald, Germany
It is shown that any metric symplectic Lie algebra has the structure of a quadratic extension. A standard model for such extensions is proposed, and the equivalence classes at the level of the quadratic cohomology sets is given. Further, a classification scheme for metric symplectic Lie algebras is provided, as well as an explicit list of isomorphism classes for some special types.
Keywords: Metric Lie algebra, symplectic Lie algebra, symmetric space.
