Abstract. We study the algebraic structure of several groups of differentiable diffeomorphism in \$\sphere^n\$. We show that given any sufficiently smooth diffeomorphism can be written as the composition of a finite number of diffeomorphisms which are symmetric under reflection, essentially one-dimensional and about as differentiable as the given one.
