# Anti-Lie triple system

A triple system is a vector space over a field together with a -trilinear mapping . A triple system satisfying

(a1) |

(a2) |

(a3) |

for all , is called an anti-Lie triple system.

If instead of (a1) one has , a Lie triple system is obtained.

Assume that is an anti-Lie triple system and that is the Lie algebra of derivations of containing the inner derivation defined by . Consider with and , and with product given by , , for , (). Then the definition of anti-Lie triple system implies that is a Lie superalgebra (cf. also Lie algebra). Hence is an ideal of the Lie superalgebra . One denotes by and calls it the standard embedding Lie superalgebra of . This concept is useful to obtain a construction of Lie superalgebras as well as a construction of Lie algebras from Lie triple systems.
