# Linear Lie algebras

A linear (or "classical") Lie algebras is a Lie algebra whose elements can be represented as matrices (or linear transformations over some vector space over a field.

### Realisation Edit

*See also: sl(n)* (special linear Lie algebra)

An A-series Lie algebra is realised by the ring of n-by-n traceless matrices.
