Abstract: Let be a restricted Lie algebra with the restricted enveloping algebra over a perfect field of positive characteristic . The restricted isomorphism problem asks what invariants of are determined by . This problem is the analogue of the modular isomorphism problem for finite -groups. Bagiński and Sandling have given a positive answer to the modular isomorphism problem for metacyclic -groups. In this paper, we provide a positive answer to the restricted isomorphism problem in case is metacyclic and -nilpotent.
