Embeddings of Lie Groups

  • Daniel Bump
Part of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics book series (GTM, volume 225)


In this chapter, we will contemplate how Lie groups embed in one another. Our aim is not to be systematic or even completely precise but to give the reader some tools for thinking about the relationships between different Lie groups. This Chapter is thus different in style and purpose than the others in this book.
