A naturally parameterised curve in a Lie group with a left invariant metric is a geodesic, if its tangent vector left-translated to the identity satisfies the Euler equation Ẏ = ad Y Y on the Lie algebra g of G. Stationary points (equilibria) of the Euler equation are called geodesic vectors: the geodesic starting at the identity in the direction of a geodesic vector is a one-parameter subgroup of G. We give a complete classification of Lyapunov stable and unstable geodesic vectors for metric…

Homogeneous geodesics and g.o. manifolds

Let be a homogeneous pseudo-Riemannian manifold, affine manifold, or Finsler space. A homogeneous geodesic is an orbit of a -parameter group of isometries, respectively, of affine diffeomorphisms. A

Homogeneous geodesics in a three-dimensional Lie group

O. Kowalski and J. Szenthe [KS] proved that every homogeneous Riemannian manifold admits at least one homogeneous geodesic, i.e. one geodesic which is an orbit of a one-parameter group of isometries.
