Is there a name for studying a Lie "group" that doesn't use the identity matrix as a member of the group?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know it's not technically a group anymore, but is there any mathematical work pertaining to the general idea... and what is the terminology so that I can research it better?
