The smaller the structure group, the stronger the structure on the differential manifold. In other words, a differential manifold with a given structure group automatically has any bigger group containing that, as structure group. The important subgroups of the general linear group occurring here are:

Lorentzian and pseudo-Riemannian manifolds correspond to pseudo-orthogonal groups O(p,q) and O(p,1).
