Abstract: 

In 1846, Arthur Cayley defined a correspondence between orthogonal
matrices of determinant one and skew-symmetric matrices. This
observation was a starting point of a long (and yet unfinished)
story. In the talk we will overview its highlights, with a focus on
the achievements obtained during the past decade and some open
problems.
