Abstract: In this paper a characterisation is given of solvable complemented Lie algebras. They decompose as a vector space direct sum of abelian subalgebras, and their ideals relate nicely to this decomposition. The class of such algebras is shown to be a formation whose residual is the ideal closure of the prefrattini subalgebras.
