**Introduction to Groups, Invariants and Particles**

by Frank W. K. Firk

**Publisher**: Orange Grove Texts Plus 2000**ISBN/ASIN**: 1616100427**ISBN-13**: 9781616100421**Number of pages**: 162

**Description**:

The book places the subject matter in its historical context with discussions of Galois groups, algebraic invariants, Lie groups and differential equations, presented at a level that is not the standard fare for students majoring in the Physical Sciences. A sound mathematical basis is thereby provided for the study of special unitary groups and their applications to Particle Physics.
