ABSTRACT We introduce a notion of left-symmetric bialgebra which is an analogue of the notion of Lie bialgebra. We prove that a left-symmetric bialgebra is equivalent to a symplectic Lie algebra with a decomposition into a direct sum of the underlying vector spaces of two Lagrangian subalgebras. The latter is called a parak\"ahler Lie algebra or a phase space of a Lie algebra in mathematical physics. We introduce and study coboundary left-symmetric bialgebras and our study leads to what we call "$S$-equation", which is an analogue of the classical Yang-Baxter equation. In a certain sense, the $S$-equation associated to a left-symmetric algebra reveals the left-symmetry of the products. We show that a symmetric solution of the $S$-equation gives a parak\"ahler Lie algebra. We also show that such a solution corresponds to the symmetric part of a certain operator called "${\cal O}$-operator", whereas a skew-symmetric solution of the classical Yang-Baxter equation corresponds to the skew-symmetric part of an ${\cal O}$-operator. Thus a method to construct symmetric solutions of the $S$-equation (hence parak\"ahler Lie algebras) from ${\cal O}$-operators is provided. Moreover, by comparing left-symmetric bialgebras and Lie bialgebras, we observe that there is a clear analogue between them and, in particular, parak\"ahler Lie groups correspond to Poisson-Lie groups in this sense.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we introduce the notion of a pre-Lie 2-algebra, which is a categorification of a pre-Lie algebra. We prove that the category of pre-Lie 2-algebras and the category of 2-term pre-Lie$_\infty$-algebras are equivalent. We classify skeletal pre-Lie 2-algebras by the third cohomology of a pre-Lie algebra. We prove that crossed modules of pre-Lie algebras are in one-to-one correspondence with strict pre-Lie 2-algebras. $\mathcal O$-operators on Lie 2-algebras are introduced, which can be used to construct pre-Lie 2-algebras. As an application, we give solutions of 2-graded classical Yang-Baxter equations in some semidirect product Lie 2-algebras.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we classify the left-symmetric superalgebras in dimensions two and three over the field of complex numbers. As a direct consequence, we obtain some explicit solutions of the graded classical Yang–Baxter equation in certain Lie superalgebras and their corresponding Lie bisuperalgebras.

    ABSTRACT: The notion of left-symmetric bialgebra was introduced in [C. M. Bai, Left-symmetric bialgebra and an analogue of the classical Yang-Baxter equation, Commun. Contemp. Math. 10(2) (2008) 221-260] which is equivalent to a parakähler Lie algebra which is the Lie algebra of a Lie group G with a G-invariant parakähler structure. In this paper, we study a conformal analog of left-symmetric bialgebras. The notions of left-symmetric conformal coalgebra and bialgebra are introduced. Moreover, the constructions of matched pairs of Lie conformal algebras and left-symmetric conformal algebras are presented. We show that a finite left-symmetric conformal bialgebra which is free as a ℂ[∂]-module is equivalent to a parakähler Lie conformal algebra. We also obtain a conformal analog of the S-equation (see [C. M. Bai, Left-symmetric bialgebras and an analogue of the classical Yang-Baxter equation, Commun. Contemp. Math. 10(2) (2008) 221-260]), and give a construction of the conformal symplectic double.
