Mark Wildon’s Website: Introduction to Lie algebras
Introduction to Lie Algebras covers the core material required for almost fo other work in Lie theory and provides a self-study guide suitable for undergraduate students in their final year and graduate students and researchers in mathematics and theoretical physics. It is based on 4th year courses given by the authors in Oxford.
Based on a lecture course given to fourth-year undergraduates, this book provides an elementary introduction to Lie algebras. With a view towards algebraic groups? Here is the current errata last updated October His main research interests are combinatorics and representation theory, especially the representation theory of the symmetric group. Or do you want to learn about Lie theory, i.
The authors would be grateful to hear of any errors or suggestions for improvements. M Turgeon 7, 3 algebrqs But this is a very good book, and it covers a wide range of topics. These free notes by Alistair Savage are an excellent introduction based on Stillwell’s and Hall’s books.
The final chapter on further directions includes brief discussions of the representation theory of semisimple Lie algebras, finite groups of Lie type, Kac—Moody Lie algebras and the restricted Burnside problem.
Lie groups and Lie algebras have become essential to many parts of mathematics and theoretical physics, with Lie algebras a central object of interest in their own right. For background, I’ll just say that I was interested in algebraic groups, and later got interested in number theory and automorphic forms and so I then had to go back and learn about Lie groups.
It starts with basic concepts.

Answers to Selected Exercises The only prerequisite knowledge needed is some linear algebra, most of which is summarised in an appendix. Go Lie Theory by Stillwell. The approach is very elementary.

Research Other Maths Teaching Miscellany. As such, it is particularly aimed at 3rd erddmann 4th year undergraduates, but we hope it will be useful to anyone who wants a gentle introduction to the subject.
From Mark Hunacek’s review for the Mathematical Gazette 92 no. For this, you need some knowledge of topology and differential geometry, i. A section on low-dimensional Lie algebras provides readers with experience of some useful examples.
