In the classification of finite simple groups, groups of Lie type are a set of infinite families of simple lie groups. These are the other infinite families besides te cyclic groups and alternating groups.

A decent list at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_finite_simple_groups, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Group_of_Lie_type is just too unclear. The groups of Lie type can be subdivided into:
🔗
The first in this family discovered were a subset of the Chevalley groups by Galois: , so it might be a good first one to try and understand what it looks like.
🔗
TODO understand intuitively why they are called of Lie type. Their names , seem to correspond to the members of the classification of simple Lie groups which are also named like that.
🔗
But they are of course related to Lie groups, and as suggested at Video 88. "Yang-Mills 1 by David Metzler (2011)" part 2, the continuity actually simplifies things.
