Lectures on Semi-group Theory and its Application to Cauchy's Problem in Partial Differential Equations
by K. Yosida
Publisher: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1957
Number of pages: 160
In these lectures, we shall be concerned with the differentiability and the representation of one-parameter semi-groups of bounded linear operators on a Banach space and with some of their applications to the initial value problem (Cauchy's problem) for differential equations, especially for the diffusion equation (heat equation) and the wave equation.

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.

The book presents in a unified manner the more fundamental aspects of finite groups and their applications, and at the same time preserves the advantage which arises when each branch of an extensive subject is written by a specialist in that branch.

This revised version of a book in progress on arithmetic groups and locally symmetric spaces contains several additional chapters, including the proofs of three major theorems of G. A. Margulis (superrigidity, arithmeticity, and normal subgroups).

This book is an account of several quite different approaches to Artin's braid groups, involving self-distributive algebra, uniform finite trees, combinatorial group theory, mapping class groups, laminations, and hyperbolic geometry.
