Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 129

Description:
The main purpose of these lecture notes is to provide a concise introduction to Lie groups, Lie algebras, and isometric and adjoint actions, aiming mostly at advanced undergraduate and graduate students. A special focus is given to maximal tori and roots of compact Lie groups, exploring its connection with isoparametric submanifolds and polar actions.

This expository article introduces the topic of roots in a compact Lie group. Compared to the many other treatments of this standard topic, I intended for mine to be relatively elementary, example-driven, and free of unnecessary abstractions.
