An Elementary Introduction to Group Theory
by M. E. Charkani
Publisher: AMS 2018
Number of pages: 47
The theory of groups is a branch of mathematics in which we study the concept of binaryoperations. Group theory has many applications in physics and chemistry, and is potentially applicable in any situation characterized by symmetry. The classification of finite simple groups is a major mathematical achievement of the 20th century.

The course given by the author in 1992 explains the solution by O. Mathieu of some conjectures in the representation theory of arbitrary semisimple algebraic groups. The conjectures concern filtrations of 'standard' representations.

The book covers a set of interrelated topics, presenting a self-contained exposition of the algebra behind the Jones polynomial along with various excursions into related areas. Directed at graduate students and mathematicians.

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.

This course brings together two areas of mathematics that each concern symmetry -- symmetry in algebra, in the case of Galois theory; and symmetry in geometry, in the case of fundamental groups. Prerequisites are courses in algebra and analysis.
