Harmonic Oscillators and Two-by-two Matrices in Symmetry Problems in Physics
by Young Suh Kim (ed.)
Publisher: MDPI AG 2017
Number of pages: 370
With a degree of exaggeration, modern physics is the physics of harmonic oscillators and two-by-two matrices. Indeed, they constitute the basic language for the symmetry problems in physics, and thus the main theme of this journal. This book could serve to illustrate the important aspect of symmetry problems in physics.

Reviews Lie groups, differential geometry, and adapts the usual notion of linear tangent application to the intrinsic point of view proposed for physics. The theory of heat conduction and the theory of linear elastic media are studied in detail.
