This article is the first in a series that will investigate symmetry and curvature properties of a right-invariant metric on a Lie group. This paper will consider Lie groups in dimension two and three and will focus on the solutions of Killing's equations. A striking result is that several of the three-dimensional Lie groups turn out to be spaces of constant curvature.
