Title: Images of the power maps on Lie groups
Abstract of Talk
Let G be a Lie group. For a natural number k, we denote by P_k, the k-th power map, defined by g\to g^k for all g\in G. In this talk, we discuss the question as to when the individual power map P_k is surjective or has a dense image in a Lie group. The problem is closely related to the study of exponentiality of Lie group.
