Finite Group Schemes
by Richard Pink
Publisher: ETH Zurich 2005
Number of pages: 78
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; emphasis is placed on complete proofs. No prerequisites other than a good knowledge of algebra and the basic properties of categories and schemes are required.

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 courses in algebra and analysis.

After introducing permutation notation and defining group, the author discusses the simpler properties of group that are independent of their modes of representation; composition-series of groups; isomorphism of a group with itself; etc.

Lecture notes on Geometry and Group Theory. In this course, we develop the basic notions of Manifolds and Geometry, with applications in physics, and also we develop the basic notions of the theory of Lie Groups, and their applications in physics.

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.
