Verbal width in the Nottingham group and related Lie algebras

Jorge Martinez Carracedo, Consuelo Martinez Lopez

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In [1], B. Klopsch proved that the Nottingham group over a finite field is verballyelliptic. We prove a similar result for fields of zero characteristic. We also provethat the Virasoro Lie algebra and some its subalgebras are polynomially elliptic
