ANALOGY: This is an analogue in Lie rings of a fact encountered in group. The old fact is: characteristicity is centralizer-closed.
Another analogue to the same fact, in the same new context, is: characteristicity is centralizer-closed for Lie rings

## Statement

### Verbal statement

The centralizer of a derivation-invariant subring of a Lie ring is also derivation-invariant.

## Proof

Given: A Lie ring $L$, a derivation-invariant subring $S$ of $L$. $C = C_L(S)$ is the set of $a \in L$ such that $[a,s] = 0$ for all $s \in S$.

To prove: $C$ is also derivation-invariant, i.e., $d(C) \subseteq C$ for any $d \in \operatorname{Der}(L)$.

Proof: Suppose $d \in \operatorname{Der}(L)$. For any $c \in C$ and $s \in S$, we need to show that $[dc,s] = 0$.

For this, note that, by the Leibniz rule property of derivations: $d([c,s]) = [dc,s] + [c,ds]$.

Since $[c,s] = 0$, the left side is zero. Further, since $S$ is derivation-invariant, $ds \in S$, so $[c,ds] = 0$. This gives $[dc,s] = 0$ as required.
