Description:
The book places the subject matter in its historical context with discussions of Galois groups, algebraic invariants, Lie groups and differential equations, presented at a level that is not the standard fare for students majoring in the Physical Sciences. A sound mathematical basis is thereby provided for the study of special unitary groups and their applications to Particle Physics.

Symmetry plays an important role in chemistry and physics. Group captures the symmetry in a very efficient manner. We focus on abstract group theory, deal with representations of groups, and deal with some applications in chemistry and physics.

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.

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.
