Universal enveloping algebras of finite-dimensional L=e algebras are fundamental examples of well-behaved noncommutative rings. On the other hand, enveloping algebras of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras remain mysterious. For example, it is not known whether it is possible for such an enveloping algebra to be (left or right) noetherian, a question that has been open since 1974. In this talk, I will give an overview of the recent progress in the study of these enveloping algebras, with a focus on questions of noetherianity.
