Binary Lie algebra
A linear algebra $A$ over a field $F$ any two elements of which generate a Lie subalgebra. The class of all binary Lie algebras over a given field $F$ generates a variety which, if the characteristic of $F$ is different from 2, is given by the system of identities
If the characteristic of $F$ is 2 and its cardinal number is not less than 4, the class of binary Lie algebras cannot be defined only by the system of identities (*), also needed is the identity
The tangent algebra of an analytic local alternative loop is a binary Lie algebra and vice versa.
