       The talk is based on the joint work with Chengming Bai, Li Guo, Honglei Lang and Rong Tang.

       Rota-Baxter operators on Lie algebras were first studied by Belavin, Drinfeld and Semenov-Tian-Shansky as operator forms of the classical Yang-Baxter equation.

      As a fundamental tool in studying integrable systems, the factorization theorem of Lie groups by Semenov-Tian-Shansky was obtained by integrating a factorization of Lie algebras from solutions of the modified Yang-Baxter equation. Integrating the Rota-Baxter operators on Lie algebras, we introduce the notion of Rota-Baxter operators on Lie groups and more generally on groups. Then the factorization theorem can be  achieved directly on groups.  As the underlying structures of Rota-Baxter operators on groups, the notion of post-groups was introduced. The differentiation of post-Lie groups gives post-Lie algebras. Post-groups are also related to braces and Lie-Butcher groups, and give rise to solutions of Yang-Baxter equations.
