I'm trying to understand why a Lie group always has a non-vanishing vector field. I know that one can somehow generate one by taking a vector from the Lie algebra and "moving it around" using the group operations as a mapping, but the nature of this map eludes me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
