Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the difference between lie group SO(3) and lie algebra so(3)? I just got the idea in terms of terminology that one represents the group and the other stands for algebra. But can anyone please provide details as to what exactly is the difference?

Regards,
