Abstract: In this paper we give a characterization of those convex cones $ W$ in the Lie algebra $ {\mathbf{L}}(G)$ of a connected Lie group $ G$ which are global in $ G$, i.e. for which there exists a closed subsemigroup $ S$ in $ G$ having $ W$ as its tangent wedge $ {\mathbf{L}}(S)$. The main result is the Characterization Theorem II.12. We also prove in Corollary II.6 that each germ of a strictly $ W$-positive function belongs to a global function if there exists at least one strictly $ W$-positive function. We apply the Characterization Theorem to obtain some general conditions for globality and to give a complete description of the global cones in compact Lie algebras.
