## Definition of the noun Lie group

What does Lie group mean as a name of something?

**noun**

- [
*topology*] Any of many analytic groups that are also a smooth manifold; they arise as groups of rotational symmetries

## Explanation

**Lie group**: In mathematics, a Lie group is a group that is also a differentiable manifold, with the property that the group operations are compatible with the smooth structure. Lie groups are named after Sophus Lie, who laid the foundations of the theory of continuous transformation groups. The term groupes de Lie first appeared in French in 1893 in the thesis of Lie’s student Arthur Tresse, page 3.
