A new invariant of quadratic lie algebras and quadratic lie superalgebras

Abstract : In this thesis, we defind a new invariant of quadratic Lie algebras and quadratic Lie superalgebras and give a complete study and classification of singular quadratic Lie algebras and singular quadratic Lie superalgebras, i.e. those for which the invariant does not vanish. The classification is related to adjoint orbits of Lie algebras o(m) and sp(2n). Also, we give an isomorphic characterization of 2-step nilpotent quadratic Lie algebras and quasi-singular quadratic Lie superalgebras for the purpose of completeness. We study pseudo-Euclidean Jordan algebras obtained as double extensions of a quadratic vector space by a one-dimensional algebra and 2-step nilpotent pseudo-Euclidean Jordan algebras, in the same manner as it was done for singular quadratic Lie algebras and 2-step nilpotent quadratic Lie algebras. Finally, we focus on the case of a symmetric Novikov algebra and study it up to dimension 7.
