This invaluable book provides a concise and systematic introduction to the theory of compact connected Lie groups and their representations, as well as a complete presentation of the structure and classification theory. It uses a non-traditional approach and organization.

There is a proper balance between, and a natural combination of, the Price: $ This volume consists of nine lectures on selected topics of Lie group theory. We provide the readers a concise introduction as well as a comprehensive "tour of revisiting" the remarkable achievements of S Lie, W Killing, Cartan and H Weyl on structural and classification theory of semi-simple Lie groups, Lie algebras and their representations; and also the wonderful duet of Cartans' theory on Cited by:   The style of the book is of lecture notes-type hence the book rather should be considered as the first step to understand the basic concepts in their clearest an simplest form.

The technical subtleties in the proofs then can be filled in later from other more detailed (however necessary much longer) books on Lie groups/5(8). Together these lectures provide an elementary account of the theory that is unsurpassed. In the first part, Roger Carter concentrates on Lie algebras and root systems.

In the second Graeme Segal discusses Lie groups. And in the final part, Ian Macdonald gives an introduction to special linear groups. Graduate students requiring an introduction Cited by: In this excellent introduction to the theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras, three of the leading figures in this area have written up their lectures from an LMS/SERC sponsored short course in Together these lectures provide an elementary account of the theory that is by: "[Lectures in Lie Groups] fulfills its aim admirably and should be a useful reference for any mathematician who would like to learn the basic results for compact Lie groups The book is a well written basic text [and Adams] has done a service to the mathematical community."—Irving Kaplansky.

Description. 1 Lecture 1 Lie Groups De nition A Lie group Gis a C1manifold with a group structure so that the group operations are smooth. More precisely, the maps m: G G!G (multiplication) inv: G!G (inversion) are C1maps of manifolds.

Example Take G = Rwith m(a;b) = a+ b, inv(a) = afor all a;b2R. Then Gis an abelian Lie group. Example the group SU(2) that will be considered in these lectures. Theories of this type are known as gauge theories, or Yang-Mills theories, and the fleld A„ is called a gauge fleld. The fact thatE en B are invariant under gauge transformations implies that electromagnetic phenomena are gauge-invariant.

For more general groups it turns out that. Part I: Lie Groups Richard Borcherds, Mark Haiman, Nicolai Reshetikhin, Vera Serganova, and Theo Johnson-Freyd October 5, of the book Lie Groups, Lie Algebras and Representations, by Brian Hall (except for sections ).

This volume consists of nine lectures on selected topics of Lie group theory. We provide the readers a concise introduction as well as a comprehensive 'tour of revisiting' the remarkable achievements of S Lie, W Killing, E Cartan and H Weyl on structural and classification theory of semi-simple Lie groups, Lie algebras and their representations; and also the wonderful duet.

The primary goal of these lectures is to introduce a beginner to the finite­ dimensional representations of Lie groups and Lie algebras. Since this goal is shared by quite a few other books, we should explain in this Preface how our approach differs, although the potential reader can probably see this better by a quick browse through the book.

I've taught a course using the 1st edition of Rossmann's book, and while I like his explicit approach, it was a real nightmare to use due to an unconscionable number.
