Authors and affiliations. Describing many of the most important aspects of Lie group theory, this book presents the subject in a 'hands on' way. Rather than concentrating on theorems and proofs, the book shows the applications of the material to physical sciences and applied mathematics.

Many examples of Lie groups and Lie algebras are given throughout the text. There is a modern book on Lie groups, namely "Structure and Geometry of Lie Groups" by Hilgert and Neeb.

It is a lovely book. It starts with matrix groups, develops them in great details, then goes on to do Lie algebras and then delves into abstract Lie Theory. the following. Suppose that g is the Lie algebra of a Lie group G. Then the local structure of Gnear the identity, i.e.

The material covered ranges from basic definitions of Lie groups to the classification of finite-dimensional representations of semisimple Lie algebras. Written in an informal style, this is a contemporary introduction to the subject which emphasizes the main concepts of the proofs and outlines the necessary technical details, allowing the Cited by: Core material: Serre’s Complex semisimple Lie algebras.

Another which has stood the test of time is Ian Stewart's book. For Lie groups and Lie algebras, it can help to see their applications early on, so some of the text books for physicists can be fun to read.This book, designed for advanced graduate students and post-graduate researchers, provides an introduction to Lie algebras and some of their applications to the spectroscopy of molecules, atoms, nuclei and hadrons.

In the first part, a concise exposition is given of the basic concepts of Lie algebras, their representations and their invariants.5/5(2).
