Abstract: The wreath product of groups $ A\wr B$ is one of basic constructions in group theory. We construct its analogue, a wreath product of Lie algebras.

Consider Lie algebras $ H$ and $ G$ over a field $ K$. Let $ U(G)$ be the universal enveloping algebra. Then $ \bar H=\operatorname{Hom}_K(U(G),H)$ has the natural structure of a Lie algebra, where the multiplication is defined via the comultiplication in $ U(G)$. Also, $ G$ acts by derivations on $ \bar H$ via the (left) coregular action. The semidirect sum $ \bar H \leftthreetimes G$ we call the wreath product and denote by $ H\wr G$. As a main result, we prove that an arbitrary extension of Lie algebras $ 0\to H\to L\to G\to 0$ can be embedded into the wreath product $ L\hookrightarrow H\wr G$.
