@article{Barron2000FactorizationOF, title={Factorization of Formal Exponentials and Uniformization}, author={Katrina Deane Barron and Yi-Zhi Huang and James Lepowsky}, journal={Journal of Algebra}, year={2000}, volume={228}, pages={551-579} }

Let g be a Lie algebra over a field of characteristic zero equipped with a vector space decomposition g = g − ⊕ g + , and let s and t be commuting formal variables commuting with g. We prove that the map C: sg − [[s, t]] × tg + [[s, t]] → sg − [[s, t]] ⊕ tg + [[s, t]] defined by the Campbell–Baker–Hausdorff formula and given by esg − etg + = eC(sg − , tg + ) for g ± ∈ g ± [[s, t]] is a bijection, as is well known when g is finite-dimensional over R or C, by geometry. It follows that there exist…
