**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.
