Galois Groups and Fundamental Groups
by

Publisher: San Francisco State University
Number of pages: 89

Description:
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 at least one course in algebra and analysis.

This work is a modern exposition of the theory of algebraic group schemes, Lie groups, and their arithmetic subgroups. Algebraic groups are groups defined by polynomials. Those in this book can all be realized as groups of matrices.

The following notes are the basis for a graduate course. They are oriented towards the application of group theory to particle physics, although some of it can be used for general quantum mechanics. They have no pretense of mathematical rigor.

The aim of the lecture course is the classification of finite commutative group schemes over a perfect field of characteristic p, using the classical approach by contravariant Dieudonne theory. The theory is developed from scratch.
