Description:
If classical Lie groups preserve bilinear vector norms, what Lie groups preserve trilinear, quadrilinear, and higher order invariants? Answering this question from a fresh and original perspective, Predrag Cvitanovic takes the reader on the amazing, four-thousand-diagram journey through the theory of Lie groups. This book is the first to systematically develop, explain, and apply diagrammatic projection operators to construct all semi-simple Lie algebras, both classical and exceptional.

Book cover: Finite Group SchemesFinite Group Schemes
by - ETH Zurich
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.
