Group Theory: Birdtracks, Lie's, and Exceptional Groups
by Predrag Cvitanovic
Publisher: Princeton University Press 2008
Number of pages: 285
If classical Lie groups preserve bilinear vector norms, what Lie groups preserve trilinear, quadrilinear, and higher order invariants? Answering this question from a fresh and original perspective, Predrag Cvitanovic takes the reader on the amazing, four-thousand-diagram journey through the theory of Lie groups. This book is the first to systematically develop, explain, and apply diagrammatic projection operators to construct all semi-simple Lie algebras, both classical and exceptional.

This book contains eight articles which focus on presenting recently developed new aspects of the theory of Galois groups and fundamental groups, avoiding classical aspects which have already been developed at length in the standard literature.

In the present paper, I will discuss some of these connections between group theory and semigroup theory, and I will also discuss some rather surprising contrasts between the theories. I will focus primarily on the theory of inverse semigroups.

A self-contained account of the elementary theory of groupoids and some of its uses in group theory and topology. Category theory appears as a secondary topic whenever it is relevant to the main issue, and its treatment is by no means systematic.
