Group theory for Maths, Physics and Chemistry
by Arjeh Cohen, Rosane Ushirobira, Jan Draisma
Number of pages: 93
Symmetry plays an important role in chemistry and physics, both at the macroscopic and the microscopic level. Group theory is an abstract setting capturing the symmetry in a very efficient manner, which helps to make computations more efficient. We focus on abstract group theory, deal with representations of groups by means of permutations and by means of matrices, and deal with some applications in chemistry and physics.

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.

A beginning graduate level book on applied group theory. Only those aspects of group theory are treated which are useful in the physical sciences, but the mathematical apparatus underlying the applications is presented with a high degree of rigor.

A book on the theory of Lie groups for researchers and graduate students in theoretical physics and mathematics. It answers what Lie groups preserve trilinear, quadrilinear, and higher order invariants. Written in a lively and personable style.

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.
