Semi-Simple Lie Algebras and Their Representations
by Robert N. Cahn
Publisher: The Benjamin/Cummings Publishing 1984
Number of pages: 164
Designed to acquaint students of particle physics already familiar with SU(2) and SU(3) with techniques applicable to all simple Lie algebras, this text is especially suited to the study of grand unification theories. Subjects include simple roots and the Cartan matrix, the classical and exceptional Lie algebras, the Weyl group, and more.

We start by giving a panorama of neutrino experiments. We briefly discuss the history of neutrinos, their experimental discovery, the quest for neutrino flavor oscillations and the experiments that finally established them ...

The authors review pedagogically non-Abelian discrete groups, which play an important role in the particle physics. They show group-theoretical aspects for many concrete groups, such as representations, their tensor products.

I review the material presented in three introductory lectures. I review the derivation of ideal and second-order viscous hydrodynamics from kinetic theory. I then show how to extend the methods used to a system that can be highly anisotropic...
The Standard Model of particle physics is a theory concerning the electromagnetic, weak, and strong nuclear interactions, which mediate the dynamics of subatomic particles. It was developed as a collaborative effort of scientists around the world.
