Book Description This graduate text focuses on the study of semisimple Lie algebras, developing the necessary theory along the way. Written in an informal style, this is a contemporary introduction to the subject.

With numerous exercises and worked examples, it is ideal for graduate courses on Lie groups and Lie algebras/5(3). 'The book is a very concise and nice introduction to Lie groups and Lie algebras. It seems to be well suited for a course on the subject.' Source: Mathematical ReviewsCited by: "The book is a very concise and nice introduction to Lie groups and Lie algebras.

The exercises and examples will be useful in that case." Erik Koelink, Mathematical Reviews/5(6). This book is a pretty good introduction to the theory of Lie algebras and their representations, and its importance cannot be overstated, due to the myriads of applications of Lie algebras to physics, engineering, and computer by: This book focuses on matrix Lie groups and Lie algebras, and their relations and representations.

This makes things a bit simpler, and not much is lost, because most of the interesting Lie groups & algebras are (isomorphic to)groups & algebras of matrices/5(8).

For a general introduction it's a great book, in particular the matrícula form of the Lie groups and algebras makes Introduction to lie groups and lie algebras book concepts easier to handle.

Based on a lecture course given to fourth-year undergraduates, this book provides an elementary introduction to Lie algebras. It starts with basic concepts. The book covers the basic theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras.

This classic graduate text focuses on the study of semisimple Lie algebras, developing the necessary theory along the way.

The material covered ranges from basic definitions of Lie groups to the classification of finite-dimensional representations of semisimple Lie algebras. Introduction to Lie Groups and Lie Algebras.

This book provides an introduction to Lie groups, Lie algebras, and repre­ sentation theory, aimed at graduate students in mathematics and physics. Although there are already several excellent books that cover many of the same topics, this book has two distinctive features that I hope will make it a useful addition to the literature.

This self-contained text is an excellent introduction to Lie groups and their actions on manifolds. The authors start with an elementary discussion of matrix groups, followed by chapters devoted to the basic structure and representation theory of finite dimensinal Lie algebras.

In particular, the theory of matrix Lie groups and their Lie algebras is developed using only linear algebra, and more motivation and intuition for proofs is provided than in most classic texts on the subject.

In addition to its accessible treatment of the basic theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras, the book is also noteworthy for including:Brand: Springer International Publishing.

The book Lie Groups, Lie Algebras, and Representations – An Elementary Introduction from Brian Hall is a good book, as well. It doesn't read as good, but it seems to be nice as a reference book.

While discussing all classes of finite and infinite dimensional Lie algebras and Lie superalgebras in terms of their different classes of root systems, the book focuses on Kac-Moody algebras. With numerous exercises and worked examples, it is ideal for graduate courses on Lie groups and Lie algebras.

This note covers the following topics: Geometric preliminaries, The Lie algebra of a Lie group, Lie algebras, Geometry of Lie groups, The Universal Enveloping Algebra, Representations of Lie groups, Compact Lie groups, Root systems, Classificiation of compact Lie groups, Representations of compact Lie groups.

This collection contains papers conceptually related to the classical ideas of Sophus Lie (i.e., to Lie groups and Lie algebras). Obviously, it is impos­ sible to embrace all such topics in a book.

"This excellent book gives an easy introduction to the theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras by restricting the material to real and complex matrix groups. This provides the reader not only with a wealth of examples, but it also makes the key concepts much more concrete.source of the power of Lie theory.

The basic object mediating between Lie groups and Lie algebras is the one-parameter group. Just as an abstract group is a coperent system of cyclic groups, a Lie group is a (very) coherent system of one-parameter groups. .The Lie algebras are studied only in connection with Lie groups, i.e.

a systematic study of the Lie algebras is included here. Neither the structural theory of the Lie groups and Lie algebras nor a systematic study of the topology of Lie groups form the subject of this volume.
