LieElement LieElement -- multiplication of Lie elements



SPACE is used as infix notation for the Lie multiplication. It is right associative and hence \break b b b a is the same as (b (b (b a))), which in output is written as (b b b a) or a normal form equivalent.

i1 : L = lieAlgebra{a,b,c}

o1 = L

o1 : LieAlgebra
i2 : b b b a

o2 = (b b b a)

o2 : L
i3 : (a b+b c) (a c)

o3 = (a c b a) - (b c c a) - (c a b a) + (c b c a)

o3 : L
