Abstract: We consider the problem of whether every continuous derivation from a group algebra $ {L^1}(G)$ into its dual $ {L^\infty }(G)$ (where the $ {L^1}(G)$ actions on $ {L^\infty }(G)$ are the adjoint of multiplication in $ {L^1}(G)$ is inner, that is, of the form $ D(a) = aF - Fa$ for some $ F \in {L^\infty }(G)$. This had previously been established to hold for discrete and amenable groups and is now established for $ G = {\text{Gl(}}n,{\mathbf{C}})$ and for all connected semisimple complex Lie groups.
