One can associate asymptotic approximates G and H with each nilpotent Lie group G and pure m-th order weighted subcoercive operator H by a scaling limit. Then the semigroups S and S(∞) generated by H and H, on the spaces Lp(G), p ∈ [1, ∞], satisfy limt→∞ ∥St - S(∞) tp→p = 0 if, and only if, G = G. If G ≠ G then limt→∞ ∥Mf(St - S(∞) t)∥p→p = 0 on the spaces Lp(g), where g denotes the Lie algebra of G, and Mf denotes the operator of multiplication by any bounded function which vanishes at infinity.
