Publisher: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1957
Number of pages: 160
In these lectures, we shall be concerned with the differentiability and the representation of one-parameter semi-groups of bounded linear operators on a Banach space and with some of their applications to the initial value problem (Cauchy's problem) for differential equations, especially for the diffusion equation (heat equation) and the wave equation.

In the present paper, I will discuss some of these connections between group theory and semigroup theory, and I will also discuss some rather surprising contrasts between the theories. I will focus primarily on the theory of inverse semigroups.

This revised version of a book in progress on arithmetic groups and locally symmetric spaces contains several additional chapters, including the proofs of three major theorems of G. A. Margulis (superrigidity, arithmeticity, and normal subgroups).

A beginning graduate level book on applied group theory. Only those aspects of group theory are treated which are useful in the physical sciences, but the mathematical apparatus underlying the applications is presented with a high degree of rigor.

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.
