Let n≥3.The complex Lie algebra, which is attached to a unit form q(x1,x2,,xn)=i=1nxi2+1ijn(1)jixixj and defined by generators and generalized Serre relations, is proved to be a finite-dimensional simple Lie algebra of type An,and realized by the Ringel-Hall Lie algebra of a Nakayama algebra of radical square zero. As its application of the realization, we give the roots and a Chevalley basis of the simple Lie algebra.

Keywords Nakayama algebras      finite-dimensional simple Lie algebras      Ringel-Hall Lie algebras
