INTRODUCTION TO LIE ALGEBRAS ERDMANN PDF

Druk: 1st ed. This book provides an elementary introduction to Lie algebras based on a lecture course given to fourth-year undergraduates. The only prerequisite is some linear algebra and an appendix summarizes the main facts that are needed. The treatment is kept as simple as possible with no attempt at full generality. Numerous worked examples and exercises are provided to test understanding, along with more demanding problems, several of which have solutions. 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.

Toon meer Toon minder Recensie s From the reviews: The book under review gives a very basic algebraic introduction to Lie algebras. 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. The book also includes an appendix with answers to selected exercises. It also provides some nice examples to relate to.

I especially recommend this book for self-study. Philosophy, Religion and Science Book Reviews, bookinspections. 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 This book aims to break this barrier and gives an introduction to Lie algebras suitable for advanced undergraduate students.

Overall this book is a very well thought out and well-written introduction to Lie algebras and it provides an excellent entry point into Lie theory for advanced undergraduates and early graduate students interested in learning about the subject. Aloysius Helminck, Mathematical Reviews, Issue e.

Mark Wildon's Website: Introduction to Lie algebras

About this book Introduction Lie groups and Lie algebras have become essential to many parts of mathematics and theoretical physics, with Lie algebras a central object of interest in their own right. Based on a lecture course given to fourth-year undergraduates, this book provides an elementary introduction to Lie algebras. It starts with basic concepts. A section on low-dimensional Lie algebras provides readers with experience of some useful examples.

Introduction to Lie Algebras

It is based on 4th year courses given by the authors in Oxford. As such, it is particularly aimed at 3rd and 4th year undergraduates, but we hope it will be useful to anyone who wants a gentle introduction to the subject. The approach is very elementary. The only prerequisite knowledge needed is some linear algebra, most of which is summarised in an appendix. Numerous examples are given, including a classification of all 3-dimensional complex Lie algebras. The root space decompositions of the classical Lie algebras are worked out in detail. 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 the restricted Burnside problem.
