Groups: Presentations and Representations
by Christopher Cooper
Publisher: Macquarie University 2008
Number of pages: 203
This is a first course on group theory but is more suitable to a third year student than a first year one. It attempts to motivate group theory with many illustrative examples such as shuffling of cards, bell ringing and permutation puzzles. As well as the usual introductory theory there's an elementary introduction to representation theory, to the Todd-Coxeter algorithm and to free groups.

This book by Dr. W. B. Vasantha aims to give a systematic development of the basic non-associative algebraic structures viz. Smarandache groupoids. Smarandache groupoids exhibits simultaneously the properties of a semigroup and a groupoid.

A self-contained account of the elementary theory of groupoids and some of its uses in group theory and topology. Category theory appears as a secondary topic whenever it is relevant to the main issue, and its treatment is by no means systematic.

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.

An elementary introduction to Lie groups, Lie algebras, and their representations. Topics include definitions and examples of Lie groups and Lie algebras, the basics of representations theory, the Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff formula, and more.
