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 defines new classes of groupoids, like matrix groupoid, polynomial groupoid, interval groupoid, and polynomial groupoid. This book introduces 77 new definitions substantiated and described by 426 examples and 150 theorems.

This book is an account of several quite different approaches to Artin's braid groups, involving self-distributive algebra, uniform finite trees, combinatorial group theory, mapping class groups, laminations, and hyperbolic geometry.

Symmetry plays an important role in chemistry and physics. Group captures the symmetry in a very efficient manner. We focus on abstract group theory, deal with representations of groups, and deal with some applications in chemistry and physics.

The book covers the basic contemporary theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras. This classic graduate text focuses on the study of semisimple Lie algebras, developing the necessary theory along the way. Written in an informal style.
