Lecture Notes in Lie Groups
by Vladimir G. Ivancevic, Tijana T. Ivancevic
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 74
These lecture notes in Lie Groups are designed for a 1-semester third year or graduate course in mathematics, physics, engineering, chemistry or biology. We give both physical and medical examples of Lie groups. The only necessary background for comprehensive reading of these notes are advanced calculus and linear algebra.

We consider some heterogeneous topics relating to Lie groups and the general theory of representations of locally compact groups. We have rigidly adhered to the analytic approach in establishing the relations between Lie groups and Lie algebras.
