Short geodesics for Ad invariant metrics in locally exponential Lie groups
Let K be a locally exponential (possibly infinite dimensional) Lie group, provided with a continuous tangent Finsler metric, which is invariant for the adjoint action of the group itself. We show that the one-parameter groups are minimizing for the Length functional of the Finsler metric. Relevant applications are given by examining groups of isometries of Banach spaces.
