We will discuss the exponential map (from a Lie algebra to the corresponding Lie group) in the case of positive characteristic p, and its relation to the Campbell-Baker-Hausdorf formula which expresses the group product via the Lie brackets. If time permits, we will also talk about loops (algebraic structures similar to groups where only a weaker form of associativity holds).
