Lie Groups, Lie Algebras, and Representations: An Elementary by Brian C. Hall

By Brian C. Hall

This textbook treats Lie teams, Lie algebras and their representations in an hassle-free yet absolutely rigorous style requiring minimum must haves. specifically, the idea of matrix Lie teams and their Lie algebras is built utilizing in simple terms linear algebra, and extra motivation and instinct for proofs is supplied than in so much vintage texts at the subject.

In addition to its obtainable remedy of the elemental thought of Lie teams and Lie algebras, the booklet can also be noteworthy for including:

  • a remedy of the Baker–Campbell–Hausdorff formulation and its use rather than the Frobenius theorem to set up deeper effects in regards to the courting among Lie teams and Lie algebras
  • motivation for the equipment of roots, weights and the Weyl staff through a concrete and distinctive exposition of the illustration thought of sl(3;C)
  • an unconventional definition of semisimplicity that permits for a quick improvement of the constitution concept of semisimple Lie algebras
  • a self-contained building of the representations of compact teams, self reliant of Lie-algebraic arguments
  • The moment version of Lie teams, Lie Algebras, and Representations comprises many immense advancements and additions, between them: a wholly new half dedicated to the constitution and illustration thought of compact Lie teams; an entire derivation of the most houses of root platforms; the development of finite-dimensional representations of semisimple Lie algebras has been elaborated; a therapy of common enveloping algebras, together with an explanation of the Poincaré–Birkhoff–Witt theorem and the life of Verma modules; whole proofs of the Weyl personality formulation, the Weyl measurement formulation and the Kostant multiplicity formula.

    Review of the 1st edition:

    The Mathematical Gazette wrote:

    This is a superb ebook. It merits to, and certainly will, turn into the traditional textual content for early graduate classes in Lie staff idea ... an immense addition to the textbook literature ... it's hugely recommended.

    Mathe ist doof !? Weshalb ganz vernünftige Menschen manchmal an Mathematik verzweifeln

    Viele Menschen haben den Seufzer "Mathe ist doof! " schon ausgestoßen. Sind denn alle diese Leute dumm oder "mathematisch unbegabt"? Wie kaum ein anderes Fach spaltet Mathematik die Geister: Mathematik ist schön, ästhetisch, wunderbar logisch und überaus nützlich - sagen die einen. Die anderen empfinden Mathematik als eine dröge Quälerei mit abstrakten Symbolen und undurchsichtigen Formeln, die guy irgendwie in der Schule durchstehen muss - und dann vergessen kann.
