Abstract

Let g = s n r be an indecomposable Lie algebra with nontrivial semisimple Levi subalgebra s and nontrivial solvable radical r. In this note it is proved that r cannot be isomorphic to a filiform nilpotent Lie algebra. The proof uses the fact that any Lie algebra g = snr with filiform radical would degenerate (even contract) to the Lie algebra snfn, where fn is the standard graded filiform
Lie algebra of dimension n = dim r. This leads to a contradiction, since no such indecomposable algebra snr with r = fn exists
