In mathematics, a group is an algebraic structure consisting of a set together with an operation that combines any two of its elements to form a third element. Groups recur throughout mathematics, and the methods of group theory have strongly influenced many parts of algebra. Linear algebraic groups and Lie groups are two branches of group theory that have experienced tremendous advances and have become subject areas in their own right.
