**Seminar Sophus Lie** is a joint Seminar of a group of German mathematicians
interested in the theory of Lie groups and their wider horizon.
It was founded around 1989-90 when, during the Volkskammer Government of
the German Democratic Republic in 1989, open contacts between mathematicians
in East- and Westgermany became a reality for the first time
since 1961. Several mathematicians located at the Technische Hochschule
Darmstadt, the University of Erlangen, the University of Greifswald,
and the University of Leipzig organized informally the Seminar with
financial support by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and met for
the first seminar session at the University of Leipzig in January 1991.
The Seminar meets once a semester since that time.
Later on groups at the University of Bielefeld, the Technical University of
Clausthal, and the University of Agriculture in Wien (Vienna, Austria)
joined the seminar. By now the scope has again widened.
Meetings were held in

For three years, the
seminar published proceedings in the format of a journal, called
* Seminar Sophus Lie*, two issues per year. This series was converted
into an international journal called * Journal of Lie Theory* in 1994.
This journal is electronically available via its homepage
at the European Mathematical Information System.

* Journal of Lie Theory* is a journal for
speedy publication of information in
the following areas: Lie algebras, Lie groups, algebraic groups,
and related types of topological groups
such as locally compact and compact groups. Applications to
representation theory, differential geometry, geometric control theory,
theoretical physics, quantum groups are considered as well.
The principal subject matter areas according to the Mathematics Subject
Classification are 14Lxx, 17Bxx, 22Bxx, 22Cxx, 22Dxx, 22Exx, 53Cxx, 81Rxx.
* Journal of Lie Theory* primarily publishes research articles.
Survey articles on a topical area inside the scope of the journal
are considered.
