Short geodesics for Ad invariant metrics in locally exponential Lie groups

Conference paper
Part of the Trends in Mathematics book series (TM)


We study the geodesic structure of Lie groups K that admit biinvariant metrics: the main results concern the fact that one-parameter groups are short paths for those metrics, as in the Riemannian case.
