Simplicity in the Faulkner construction

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We revisit the Faulkner construction of metric 3-Leibniz algebras admitting an embedding Lie (super) algebra. In the case of positive-definite signature, we relate the various notions of simplicity: of the 3-algebra, of the representation and of the embedding Lie (super) algebra. This reduces their classification to the extant classifications of simple Lie (super) algebras.
