Compact Group

Compact matrix groups are bounded in two related ways: (1) The individual matrix elements cannot exceed some maximum value. (2) The volume of parameter space is finite.

The Peter-Weyl theorem:A real, connected, semi-simple Lie group G is compact if and only if its corresponding real Lie algebra is compact.
