the commutator in the(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff formulamust be proportional to some linear

combination of the generators of the group (because of closure)

The constants of proportionality are called theStructure Constants

of the group, and if they are completely known, the commutation relations between

all the generators are known, and so the entire group can be determined in any

representation you want.

I want to understand this?
