classical Lie group
∞-Lie theory (higher geometry)
Formal Lie groupoids
The classification of simple Lie groups contains four infinite series of “classical” simple Lie groups:
Apart from this there are five exceptional Lie groups.
More generally, other matrix Lie groups, such as the general linear group , may be called “classical”.
