All in all, Lie Groups, Physics, and Geometry is a worthy addition to the literature "Price: $ This book is intended as an introductory text on the subject of Lie groups and algebras and their role in various fields of mathematics and physics. It is written by and for researchers who are primarily analysts or physicists, not algebraists or geometers.

Not that we have eschewed the algebraic and geo metric. The relation between Lie group theory and algorithms for solving ordinary differential equations is presented and shown to be analogous to the relation between Galois groups and algorithms for solving polynomial equations.

Other chapters are devoted to differential geometry, relativity, electrodynamics, and the hydrogen by: Lie groups are beautiful, important, and useful because they have one foot in each of the two great divisions of mathematics algebra and geometry.

Their algebraic properties derive from the group axioms. Their geometric properties derive from the identification of group operations with points in a topological space.

Many years ago I wrote the book Lie Groups, Lie Algebras, and Some of Their Applications (NY: Wiley, ). That was a big book: long and diﬃcult. Over the course of the years I realized that more than 90% of the most useful material in that book could be presented in less than 10% of the space.

This is quite a useful introduction to some of the basics of Lie algebras and Lie groups, written by a physicist for physicists. It is a bit idiosyncratic in its coverage, but what it does cover is explained reasonably well.

Size: KB.Lie groups are smooth differentiable manifolds and as such can be studied using differential calculus, in contrast with the case of more general topological of the key ideas in the theory of Lie groups is to replace the global object, the group, with its local or linearized version, which Lie himself called its "infinitesimal group" and which has since become known as its Lie algebra.
