For background, I’ll just say that I was interested in algebraic groups, and later got interested in number theory and automorphic forms and so I then had to go back and learn about Lie groups.

The final chapter on further directions includes brief discussions of the representation theory of semisimple Lie algebras, finite groups of Lie type, Kac—Moody Lie algebras and alfebras restricted Burnside problem.

Lie groups and Lie algebras have become essential to many parts of mathematics and theoretical physics, with Lie algebras a widon object of interest in their own right. Introduction to Lie Algebras covers the core material required for almost all other work in Lie theory and provides a self-study guide suitable for undergraduate students in their final year and graduate students and researchers in mathematics and theoretical physics.


An overview of further directions then concludes the book and introeuction the high degree to which Lie algebras influence present-day mathematics.

Introduction to Lie Algebras (eBook, PDF)

The root-space decomposition of a semisimple Lie algebra is discussed, and the classical Lie algebras studied in detail. This is very hands down, they assume right away that you are working over the complex numbers.

M Turgeon 7, 3 30 LowDimensional Lie Algebras erdmqnn Karin Erdmann is a well-known and respected algebraist at the international level, with extensive experience in writing and teaching. His main research interests are combinatorics and representation theory, especially the representation theory of the symmetric group. Do you want to study solely the algebraic side?

Could you provide some advice and recommend some books? Answers to Selected Exercises.

Numerous worked examples and exercises are provided to test understanding, along with more demanding problems, several of which have solutions. Klicken Sie auf 2.

Easily readable and without attempt at full generality, the text presents lots of examples and exercises on the different topics on Lie algebras which are treated. From Mark Hunacek’s review for the Mathematical Gazette 92 no. In summary, I think this text may be the best pedagogical advance in the teaching of Lie algebras in the last few decades, and may in fact be the only textbook Here is the current errata last updated October The book also includes an appendix with answers to selected exercises.
