Let G be a simple, compact, simply-connected Lie group localized at an odd prime p. We study the group of homotopy classes of self-maps [G, G] when the rank of G is low and in certain cases describe the set of homotopy classes of multiplicative self-maps H[G, G]. The low rank condition gives G certain structural properties which make calculations accessible. Several examples and applications are given.
