The algebraic methods are used in the web geometry, in particular in the 3-web. Along the line, we suggest a new, alternative algebraic method for computation of the quantities 1βˆ‡π‘™π‘Žπ‘–π‘—π‘˜, 2βˆ‡π‘™π‘Žπ‘–π‘—π‘˜, and π‘‘π‘–π‘—π‘˜π‘™π‘š by means of the embedding of local loops into Lie groups.
