We consider the following two questions. Is every skewsymmetric biderivation on the current Lie algebra $L\otimes A$ of the form $(x,y) \mapsto \lambda([x,y])$ for some $\gamma \in {\rm Cent}(L\otimes A)$, if the same holds true for $L$? Does every commuting linear map of $L\otimes A$ belong to ${\rm Cent}(L\otimes A)$, if the same holds true for $L$? Keywords: Lie algebra, current Lie algebra, tensor product of algebras, biderivation, commuting linear map, centroid. MSC: 17B05, 17B40, 15A69, 16R60. [ Fulltextpdf (92 KB)] for subscribers only.
