## Abstract

We show that for a large class of connected Lie groups $G$, viz. from \emph{class} $\mathcal{C}$ described below, given a probability measure μ on $G$ and a natural number $n$, for any sequence $\{\nu_i\}$ of $n$th convolution roots of μ there exists a sequence $\{z_i\}$ of elements of G, centralising the support of μ, and such that $\{z_i \nu_i \z_i^{-1}\} is relatively compact; thus the set of roots is relatively compact ‘modulo’ the conjugation action of the centraliser of supp μ. We also analyse the dependence of the sequence $\{z_i\}$ on $n$. The results yield a simpler and more transparent proof of the embedding theorem for infinitely divisible probability measures on the Lie groups as above, proved in [S.G. Dani, M. McCrudden, Embeddability of infinitely divisible distributions on linear Lie groups, Invent. Math. 110 (1992) 237–261].
