IsLieAlgebra

check if a LAVF object is a Lie algebra

 Calling Sequence IsLieAlgebra( obj)

Parameters

 obj - a LAVF object.

Description

 • The method IsLieAlgebra checks if a LAVF object is a Lie algebra. In other words, let L be a LAVF object, then the method returns true if $\left[L,L\right]\subseteq \phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{0.5ex}{0.0ex}}L$, false otherwise.
 • IsLieAlgebra(L) is equivalent to AreCommuting(L,L,L). See AreCommuting for more detail.
 • This method is associated with the LAVF object. For more detail, see Overview of the LAVF object.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{LieAlgebrasOfVectorFields}\right):$
 > $\mathrm{Typesetting}:-\mathrm{Settings}\left(\mathrm{userep}=\mathrm{true}\right):$
 > $\mathrm{Typesetting}:-\mathrm{Suppress}\left(\left[\mathrm{ξ}\left(x,y\right),\mathrm{η}\left(x,y\right)\right]\right):$
 > $V≔\mathrm{VectorField}\left(\mathrm{ξ}\left(x,y\right){\mathrm{D}}_{x}+\mathrm{η}\left(x,y\right){\mathrm{D}}_{y},\mathrm{space}=\left[x,y\right]\right)$
 ${V}{≔}{\mathrm{\xi }}{}\left(\frac{{ⅆ}}{{ⅆ}{x}}\right){+}{\mathrm{\eta }}{}\left(\frac{{ⅆ}}{{ⅆ}{y}}\right)$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{E2}≔\mathrm{LHPDE}\left(\left[\frac{{\partial }^{2}}{\partial {y}^{2}}\mathrm{ξ}\left(x,y\right)=0,\frac{\partial }{\partial x}\mathrm{η}\left(x,y\right)=-\left(\frac{\partial }{\partial y}\mathrm{ξ}\left(x,y\right)\right),\frac{\partial }{\partial y}\mathrm{η}\left(x,y\right)=0,\frac{\partial }{\partial x}\mathrm{ξ}\left(x,y\right)=0\right],\mathrm{indep}=\left[x,y\right],\mathrm{dep}=\left[\mathrm{ξ},\mathrm{η}\right]\right)$
 ${\mathrm{E2}}{≔}\left[{{\mathrm{\xi }}}_{{y}{,}{y}}{=}{0}{,}{{\mathrm{\eta }}}_{{x}}{=}{-}{{\mathrm{\xi }}}_{{y}}{,}{{\mathrm{\eta }}}_{{y}}{=}{0}{,}{{\mathrm{\xi }}}_{{x}}{=}{0}\right]{,}{\mathrm{indep}}{=}\left[{x}{,}{y}\right]{,}{\mathrm{dep}}{=}\left[{\mathrm{\xi }}{,}{\mathrm{\eta }}\right]$ (2)

We first construct a LAVF object for E(2).

 > $L≔\mathrm{LAVF}\left(V,\mathrm{E2}\right)$
 ${L}{≔}\left[{\mathrm{\xi }}{}\left(\frac{{ⅆ}}{{ⅆ}{x}}\right){+}{\mathrm{\eta }}{}\left(\frac{{ⅆ}}{{ⅆ}{y}}\right)\right]\phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{0.3em}{0.0ex}}{&where}\phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{0.3em}{0.0ex}}\left\{\left[{{\mathrm{\xi }}}_{{y}{,}{y}}{=}{0}{,}{{\mathrm{\xi }}}_{{x}}{=}{0}{,}{{\mathrm{\eta }}}_{{x}}{=}{-}{{\mathrm{\xi }}}_{{y}}{,}{{\mathrm{\eta }}}_{{y}}{=}{0}\right]\right\}$ (3)

These vector fields in fact form a Lie algebra.
