Roots of a Compact Lie Group
by Kristopher Tapp
Publisher: arXiv 2009
Number of pages: 39
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. Some familiarity with matrix groups and with maximal tori is assumed.

These lecture notes provide a concise introduction to Lie groups, Lie algebras, and isometric and adjoint actions, aiming at advanced undergraduate and graduate students. A special focus is given to maximal tori and roots of compact Lie groups.

The book emphasizes the most useful aspects of Lie groups, in a way that is easy for students to acquire and to assimilate. It includes a chapter dedicated to the applications of Lie group theory to solving differential equations.

In this treatise an attempt is made to give, in as elementary a form as possible, the main outlines of Lie's theory of Continuous Groups. Even those familiar with the theory may find something new in the form in which the theory is here presented.
