Could it be useful to give a few examples of non-compact groups (i.e. the Lorentz-group)? To give a better understanding wether a group is compact or not.
Non Lie conpact groups.
I would like an example (or pointer to) a compact topological group that is not a Lie Group.

Finite groups are Lie groups?
Unless there's some degenerate definition of a Lie group I'm not familiar with, finite groups are not Lie groups - they are not locally homeomorphic to R^n or C^n. I've removed this and put it further down as a set of (rather trivial) further examples of compact topological groups. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:11, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
