Definition

As the category of LCS-Baer Lie rings

The LCS-Baer Lie category can be defined as the following concrete category:

Item Value
Objects LCS-Baer Lie rings, i.e., Lie rings that have class at most two and whose derived subring is uniquely 2-divisible.
Morphisms Lie ring homomorphisms between LCS-Baer Lie rings. Note that a Lie ring homomorphism automatically preserves the unique 2-division.
Forgetful functor to set Sends a LCS-Baer Lie ring to its underlying set, sends a homomorphism of LCS-Baer Lie rings to the map of underlying sets.

Viewed this way, the category is a full subcategory of the category of Lie rings.

As the category of LCS-Baer Lie groups

The LCS-Baer Lie category can be defined as the following concrete category:

Item Value
Objects LCS-Baer Lie groups, i.e., groups of class at most two and whose derived subring is uniquely 2-divisible.
Morphisms homomorphism of groups between LCS-Baer Lie groups. This automatically preserves the unique 2-division.
Forgetful functor to set Sends a LCS-Baer Lie group to its underlying set, sends a homomorphism of LCS-Baer Lie groups to the map of underlying sets.

Viewed this way, the category is a full subcategory of the category of groups.
