Based on the 9th workshop on Lie theory and its applications in physics, Varna, Bulgaria, June 20–26, 2011. Tokyo: Springer (ISBN 978-4-431-54269-8/hbk; 978-4-431-54270-4/ebook).

Summary: In this short note we study Lie algebras in the framework of symmetric monoidal categories. After a brief review of the existing work in this field and a presentation of earlier studied and new examples, we examine which functors preserve the structure of a Lie algebra.
