The Lie algebra exponential covering problem can be seen as a generalized version of this problem, because
  • Lie algebra of is just the entire
  • we can immediately exclude non-invertible matrices from being the result of the exponential, because has inverse , so we already know that non-invertible matrices are not reachable
