Suppose G is a Lazard Lie group and L is its Lazard Lie ring with \log:G \to L the logarithm map and \exp:L \to G the exponential map. (These are both bijections, and are inverses of each other).

Then, \log and \exp are 1-isomorphisms, i.e., they are isomorphisms when restricted to cyclic subgroups.

Facts used

  1. Logarithm map from Lazard Lie group to its Lazard Lie ring is a quasihomomorphism


Proof outline

This follows directly from fact (1), and the fact that the logarithm map is bijective.
