Abstract:

Given a finite-dimensional, simple Lie algebra g over C and A, a commutative, associative algebra with unity over C, we exhibit a Z-form for the universal enveloping algebra of g tensor A and an explicit Z-basis for this Z-form. We also produce explicit commutation formulas in the universal enveloping algebra of sl_2 tensor A that allow us to write certain elements in PBW basis order.
