Ideals in the Goldman Algebra

12 Dec 2017  ·  Nguyen Minh ·

The goal of this work is to study the ideals of the Goldman Lie algebra $S$. To do so, we construct an algebra homomorphism from $S$ to a simpler algebraic structure, and focus on finding ideals of this new structure instead... The structure $S$ can be regarded as either a $\mathbb{Q}$-module or a $\mathbb{Q}$-module generated by free homotopy classes. For $\mathbb{Z}$-module case, we proved that there is an infinite class of ideals of $S$ that contain a certain finite set of free homotopy classes. For $\mathbb{Q}$-module case, we can classify all the ideals of the new structure and consequently obtain a new class of ideals of the original structure. Finally, we show an interesting infinite chain of ideals that are not those ideals obtained by considering the new structure. read more
