Lie Subgroups of the 2D Torus Group

This Demonstration draws the one-dimensional Lie group plotted as a subgroup embedded (or immersed) in the two-dimensional torus group ={(exp(iθ),exp(iθ))|θ∈}. The slope is set by the direction of the velocity, and the subgroup is plotted from up to a maximum value set by the "length" value; this latter is the product of the "multiplier" value and the length of the velocity, so you can watch the thread grow by putting the velocity near (left-bottom corner) and dragging it to longer and longer lengths.
