Goals of studying 
Studying one of the most important classes of mathematical objects – smooth manifolds, which are widely used in theoretical and applied directions of mathematics. Based on this information, the main goal of the subsequent presentation is the introduction to Lie group theory, which is one of the most advanced branches of modern mathematics and is widely used not only within mathematics, but also in mechanics, theoretical physics and other natural sciences.
