Suppose G is a real semisimple Lie group without compact factor, then Aut(g) is obviously an algebraic subgroup of SL(n,R) where g is the Lie algebra and n is the dimension. Regard the adjoint representation of G as a subgroup of Aut(g), does it always have finiteindex, or at least is it always Zariski closed?
