Lie Groups Beyond an Introduction, Hardback Book

Lie Groups Beyond an Introduction Hardback

Part of the Progress in Mathematics series


This book takes the reader from the end of introductory Lie group theory to the threshold of infinite-dimensional group representations.

Merging algebra and analysis throughout, the author uses Lie-theoretic methods to develop a beautiful theory having wide applications in mathematics and physics.

The book initially shares insights that make use of actual matrices; it later relies on such structural features as properties of root systems.
