This article describes a bijection, i.e., a correspondence, that arises as part of the Lazard correspondence.


Suppose G is a Lazard Lie group, L is its Lazard Lie ring, and \exp:L \to G and \log:G \to L are the exponential and logarithm maps respectively (they are both bijections and are inverses of each other). Note that we may wish to think of G and L as having the same underlying set and treat the bijections as being the identity map on the underlying set; however, for conceptual convenience, we are using separate symbols for the group and Lie ring and explicit names for the bijections.

This bijection establishes a correspondence:

powering-invariant subgroups of G \leftrightarrow powering-invariant subrings of L
