Central Quotients and Coverings of Steinberg Unitary Lie Algebras

  • Bruce N. Allison (a1) and Yun Gao (a1)

Abstract

In this paper, we calculate the center and the universal covering algebra of the Steinberg unitary Lie algebra stu n , where is a unital nonassociative algebra with involution and n ≥ 3.
