Martin Markl: Lie elements in pre-Lie algebras, trees and cohomology operations.

ABSTRACT: We give a simple characterization of Lie elements in free pre-Lie algebras as elements of the kernel of a map between spaces of trees. We explain how this result is related to natural operations on the Chevalley-Eilenberg complex of a Lie algebra. We also indicate a possible relation to Loday's theory of triplettes.
