This volume consists of nine lectures on selected topics of Lie group theory. We provide the readers a concise introduction as well as a comprehensive "tour of revisiting" the remarkable achievements of S Lie, W Killing, É Cartan and H Weyl on structural and classification theory of semi-simple Lie groups, Lie algebras and their representations; and also the wonderful duet of Cartan's theory Cited by: However, 1 feei there is a need for a single book in English which develops both the algebraic and analytic aspects of the theory and which goes into the representation theory of semi simple Lie groups and Lie algebras in detail. This book is an attempt to fiii this need. It is my hope that this book will introduce the aspiring graduate Brand: Springer-Verlag New York.

This book is designed to introduce the reader to the theory of semisimple Lie algebras over an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0, with emphasis on representations. A good knowledge of linear algebra (including eigenvalues, bilinear forms, euclidean spaces, and tensor products of vector. I have been trying to learn about the classification of semi-simple Lie algebras and their representations using the Cartan Weyl approach i.e. Cartan subalgebra, roots, weights I would like to find a book that includes proofs since most times I come across statements and formulas I .

The present volume is intended to meet the need of particle physicists for a book which is accessible to non-mathematicians.
