Description:
These are notes of a mini-course of group theory for high school students that I gave in the Summer of 2009. This mini-course covers the most basic parts of group theory with many examples and applications. The notes contain many exercises, which are necessary for understanding the main text.

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.
