**Algebraic Groups, Lie Groups, and their Arithmetic Subgroups**

by

**J. S. Milne**

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.
