In 2006, Bacher introduced a family of Riordan group automorphisms
parametrized by three complex numbers. Bacher's family is a subgroup
of the group of automorphisms of the Riordan group and so is the
subfamily parametrized only by two real numbers. Here, we study some
of the algebraic properties of this subfamily and use the elements to
point out isomorphisms between Riordan subgroups. In this context,
we prove that the set of Riordan arrays whose row sum sequence is a
sequence of partial sums, forms a Riordan subgroup. Moreover, we show
that the well-known recursive matrices may be constructed from sequences
of images of a Riordan array under automorphisms. Our construction
also discloses a correspondence between the recursive matrices and a
pair of well-defined Riordan arrays.
