This Lie ring can be defined in the following equivalent ways:

\langle e,f,h \mid e + e = f + f = h + h = 0, [e,f] = h, [h,e] = [h,f] = 0 \rangle

  • It is the Lie ring of strictly upper-triangular 3 \times 3 matrices over the field of two elements, with the Lie bracket given by the commutator of two matrices [A,B] := AB - BA.
