The compact form of G₂ can be described as the automorphism group of the octonion algebra or, equivalently, as the subgroup of SO that preserves any chosen particular vector in its 8-dimensional real spinor representation. Robert Bryant introduced the definition of G₂ as the subgroup of that preserves the non-degenerate 3-form with denoting In older books and papers, G₂ is sometimes denoted by E₂.
