An Elementary Introduction to Groups and Representations
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 128

Description:
These notes give an elementary introduction to Lie groups, Lie algebras, and their representations. Designed to be accessible to graduate students in mathematics or physics, they have a minimum of prerequisites. Topics include definitions and examples of Lie groups and Lie algebras, the relationship between Lie groups and Lie algebras via the exponential mapping, the basics of representations theory, the Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff formula, a detailed study of the representations of SU(3), and a brief survey of the representation theory of general semisimple groups.

In this book, for the first time, the authors represented every finite group in the form of a graph. This study is significant because properties of groups can be immediately obtained by looking at the graphs of the groups.

This book aims at introducing the reader to more advanced treatises and original papers on Groups of finite order. The subject requires for its study only an elementary knowledge of Algebra. I have tried to lighten for him the initial difficulties.
