OK, can someone please tell if 0 (zero) would belong to the center of a Lie algebra.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

By center I mean for a Lie algebra L

center(L) = { z in L : [z,x]=0 for all x in L}

I think it should, but I'm not too sure...I'm surely confusing myself somewhere along the line, as this shouldn't be too difficult to say either way... :uhh:
