## Definition

A **Baer Lie group** is a group satisfying the following two conditions:

- It is a nilpotent group of class two, i.e., its nilpotency class is at most two.
- It is a 2-powered group: For every , there is a unique element such that .

Given condition (1), condition (2) is equivalent to requiring that be both 2-torsion-free (i.e., no element of order two) and 2-divisible. (see equivalence of definitions of nilpotent group that is torsion-free for a set of primes).

A Baer Lie group is a group that can serve on the group side of a Baer correspondence, i.e., it has a corresponding Baer Lie ring.
