- Abstract: Borcherds algebras are generalizations of Kac-Moody algebras and have wide applications in physical theories and the study of automorphic forms. We discuss the problem of associating the analog of a Lie a group to a Borcherds algebra and we present some examples, including the Monster Lie algebra.
