Abstract

A connected Lie group G is generated by its two 1-parametric subgroups exp(tX), exp(tY) if and only if the Lie algebra of G is generated by {X, Y}. We consider decompositions of elements of G into a product of such exponentials with times t > 0 and study the problem of minimizing the total time of the decompositions for a fixed element of G. We solve this problem for the group SU(2) and describe the structure of the time-optimal decompositions.
