'Continuous Groups Of Transformations' sets forth the general theory of Lie and his contemporaries and the results of recent investigations with the aid of the methods of the tensor calculus and concepts of the new differential geometry.
by Alexander Kirillov, Jr. - SUNY at Stony Brook
The book covers the basic contemporary theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras. This classic graduate text focuses on the study of semisimple Lie algebras, developing the necessary theory along the way. Written in an informal style.
