Abstract: Suppose $ X$ is a Banach space, $ G$ is a connected open subset of $ X$, and $ p$ is a continuously Fréchet differentiable function from $ G$ into $ G$ satisfying $ p(p(x)) = p(x)$ for each $ x$ in $ G$. We prove that $ p(G)$ is a differentiable submanifold of $ X$ and use this result to show that the maximal subgroup containing an idempotent in a differentiable semigroup is a Lie group.
