On the center of the enveloping algebra of a Takiff algebra. (Sur le centre de l’algèbre enveloppante d’une algèbre de Takiff.) (French) Zbl 0842.17008

This paper is an expanded version of [C. R. Acad. Sci., Paris, Sér. I 319, 11-14 (1994; Zbl 0812.17010)]; some additional details are provided and an explicit characterization of an important irreducible variety arising in the earlier paper is given.
