#### Abstract

We construct classical Iso-Lie and Iso-Hom-Lie algebras in by twisted commutator bracket through Iso-deformation. We prove that they are simple. Their Iso-automorphisms and isotopies are also presented.

#### 1. Introduction

The conventional Lie theory has been developed in mathematical literature in its linear, local, and canonical formulation and the simplest conceivable product , where is the trivial associative product. But it is not applicable to a growing number of nonlinear, nonlocal, and noncanonical systems which have recently emerged in mathematics. Lie-isotopic theory [1–3] is the generalization of the unit to a new one called isotopic unit or isounit. The resulting new mathematical structures include the old ones as special cases.

Hom-Lie algebras were first introduced by Hartwig et al. in [4] to describe the structure of deformation of the Witt and Virasoro algebra in 2006. They are a generalization of Lie algebras. When , the Hom-Lie algebras degenerate to exactly the Lie algebras. Because Hom-Lie algebras are closely related to discrete and deformed vector fields, differential calculus [5, 6], they have been researched extensively these years [7–9].

An elementary but important property of Lie algebras is that each associative algebra gives rise to a Lie algebra via the commutator bracket. But it is not natural to define Hom-Lie algebras by this way. In [10], Makhlouf and Silvestrov introduced the notion of a Hom-associative algebra , in which the binary operation satisfies an twisted version of associativity. The authors mentioned that Lie-Santilli isotopies [1–3] can be modified appropriately to suit the Hom-algebras context. The relations between Hom-Lie algebras and Santilli's deformed bracket products are certainly interesting. This method solves the question how can commutator products in a linear space be modified to yield as general as possible (Hom-)Lie algebras.

The structure of Lie algebras over is better understood now [11, 12]. Classical simple Lie algebras over can be classified into , , , types. Similarly, we can use the twisted commutator bracket through Iso-deformation to study classical Iso-(Hom-)Lie algebras over .

The paper is organized as follows: in Section 2, we study relations between multiplicative Hom-Lie algebras and Lie algebras; in Section 3, we construct Iso-Lie and Iso-Hom-Lie algebras; in Section 4, classical II types , , , -Iso-Lie and Iso-Hom-Lie algebras are studied. We prove that they are simple. Their Iso-automorphism and isotopy are also presented.

Throughout this paper, we denote by “” the identity matrix, “” the linear group, and “” the transpose of matrix , and “” denotes the isomorphism of algebras. Without otherwise stated, all algebras are finite dimensional and over the complex field .

#### 2. Hom-Lie Algebras

*Definition 1 (see [4]). *A Hom-Lie algebra is a triple consisting of a vector space over , a linear sef-map , and a bilinear map satisfying

When , is degenerated to Lie algebra . A Hom-Lie algebra is called multiplicative if is satisfied [13]. We call Lie-type if there exists a Lie algebra such that ,. At the same time is called the Hom-Lie admissible algebra of .

A subspace of is called an ideal of if , are satisfied. We call a Hom-Lie algebra simple if it has no nontrivial ideals and .

An automorphism of a Hom-Lie algebra is an invertible linear self-map satisfying , and .

An isomorphism of Hom-Lie algebras with is an invertible linear map satisfying and .

Lemma 2. *Let be a multiplicative simple Hom-Lie algebra. Then is invertible.*

*Proof. *It is easy to check that is an ideal of . By the simplicity of , we have . That is, is invertible.

Lemma 3 (see [14]). *Let be a Lie algebra over with an algebraic homomorphism . Define a bracket by , . Then is a Hom-Lie algebra.*

Theorem 4. *Let be a multiplicative Hom-Lie algebra with invertible. Then is Lie-type with the Hom-Lie admissible algebra , where is defined by .*

*Proof. *Define . It is easy to check that
Now we prove that is a Lie algebra. The skew-symmetricity of is obvious. ,

Lemma 5 (see [15]). *Let and be Lie type Hom-Lie algebra with invertible. Then an invertible linear map is an isomorphism of Hom-Lie algebras if and only if is an isomorphism of their Hom-Lie admissible algebras satisfying .*

Lemma 6 (see [15]). *Let be a Lie type Hom-Lie algebra with invertible. Then is an automorphism of if and only if is an automorphism of the Hom-Lie admissible algebra satisfying .*

Proposition 7. *Let be a finite dimensional Lie type Hom-Lie algebra with invertible. If its Hom-Lie admissible algebra is simple, then is simple.*

which is a contradiction with the simplicity of . This reduces to .

Let be a nontrivial ideal of . By definition there are ; . Therefore, . That is, is a nontrivial ideal of the Hom-Lie admissible algebra, which is impossible. We have the conclusion.

#### 3. Iso Algebras

Let be an associative algebra with the conventional associative product over . An Iso-associative algebra is the same vector space over with a product satisfying , where the product is defined by one of the following cases, the parameters , appearing in cases II–V are fixed not necessary belonging to (it deserves to mention that in [3], is an Iso-associative algebra over an Iso-field , specially, in this paper we study Iso-algebra over ): I: is fixed; II: is invertible; III: ; IV: ; V: .It is obvious that of the above Iso-associative algebras only the first four are independent and there is no essential difference between type I and the conventional associative algebra.

*Definition 8. *An Iso-Lie algebra is a vector space over with a bracket defined by , where is an Iso-associative algebra. At the same time is called the Lie admissible algebra of .

We call an isomorphism of Iso-algebras an isotopy. An automorphism of an Iso-algebra is called an Iso-automorphism.

We call an Iso-Hom-Lie algebra if its Hom-Lie admissible algebra is an Iso-Lie algebra.

Corollary 9. *Let be an Iso-Lie algebra with an Iso-automorphism . Define a bracket by . Then is an Iso-Hom-Lie algebra.*

We call I–V type Iso-Lie algebras if their Lie admissible algebras are I–V type Iso-associative algebras, respectively. And call the Iso-Hom-Lie algebras constructed in Corollary 9 I–V type Iso-Hom-Lie algebras if their Hom-Lie admissible algebras are I–V type Iso-Lie algebras, respectively. In this paper we put emphasis on type II Iso-(Hom-)Lie algebras.
