Groups and Semigroups: Connections and Contrasts
by John Meakin - University of Nebraska-Lincoln , 2005
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.
Theory and Applications of Finite Groups
by G. A. Miller, H. F. Blichfeldt, L. E. Dickson - J. Wiley , 1916
The book presents in a unified manner the more fundamental aspects of finite groups and their applications, and at the same time preserves the advantage which arises when each branch of an extensive subject is written by a specialist in that branch.
An Introduction to Group Theory: Applications to Mathematical Music Theory
by Flor Aceff-Sanchez, et al. - BookBoon , 2013
In this text, a modern presentation of the fundamental notions of Group Theory is chosen, where the language of commutative diagrams and universal properties, so necessary in Modern Mathematics, in Physics and Computer Science, is introduced.
Theory of Groups of Finite Order
by William Burnside - Cambridge University Press , 1897
After introducing permutation notation and defining group, the author discusses the simpler properties of group that are independent of their modes of representation; composition-series of groups; isomorphism of a group with itself; etc.
Frobenius Splittings and B-Modules
by Wilberd van der Kallen - Springer , 1993
The course given by the author in 1992 explains the solution by O. Mathieu of some conjectures in the representation theory of arbitrary semisimple algebraic groups. The conjectures concern filtrations of 'standard' representations.
Congruence Lattices of Finite Algebras
by William DeMeo - arXiv , 2012
We review a number of methods for finding a finite algebra with a given congruence lattice, including searching for intervals in subgroup lattices. We also consider methods for proving that algebras with a given congruence lattice exist...
Lectures on Topics In The Theory of Infinite Groups
by B.H. Neumann - Tata Institute of Fundamental Research , 1960
As the title suggests, the aim was not a systematic treatment of infinite groups. Instead the author tried to present some of the methods and results that are new and look promising, and that have not yet found their way into the books.
Lectures on Semi-group Theory and its Application to Cauchy's Problem in Partial Differential Equations
by K. Yosida - Tata Institute of Fundamental Research , 1957
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 their applications to the initial value problem for differential equations.
Finite Group Schemes
by Richard Pink - ETH Zurich , 2005
The aim of the lecture course is the classification of finite commutative group schemes over a perfect field of characteristic p, using the classical approach by contravariant Dieudonne theory. The theory is developed from scratch.
Galois Groups and Fundamental Groups

This course brings together two areas of mathematics that each concern symmetry -- symmetry in algebra, in the case of Galois theory; and symmetry in geometry, in the case of fundamental groups. Prerequisites are courses in algebra and analysis.

by F. J. Yndurain - arXiv , 2007
The following notes are the basis for a graduate course. They are oriented towards the application of group theory to particle physics, although some of it can be used for general quantum mechanics. They have no pretense of mathematical rigor.

Why are Braids Orderable?
by Patrick Dehornoy, at al. , 2010
This book is an account of several quite different approaches to Artin's braid groups, involving self-distributive algebra, uniform finite trees, combinatorial group theory, mapping class groups, laminations, and hyperbolic geometry.
Introduction to Lie Groups and Lie Algebras
by Alexander Kirillov, Jr. - SUNY at Stony Brook , 2010
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.
Algebraic Groups, Lie Groups, and their Arithmetic Subgroups
by J. S. Milne , 2010
This work is a modern exposition of the theory of algebraic group schemes, Lie groups, and their arithmetic subgroups. Algebraic groups are groups defined by polynomials. Those in this book can all be realized as groups of matrices.
Introduction to Arithmetic Groups

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).
by W. B. Vasantha Kandasamy - American Research Press , 2002
The Smarandache semigroups exhibit properties of both a group and a semigroup simultaneously. This book assumes the reader to have a good background on group theory; we give some recollection about groups and some of its properties for reference.
Groupoids and Smarandache Groupoids
by W. B. Vasantha Kandasamy - American Research Press , 2002
This book by Dr. W. B. Vasantha aims to give a systematic development of the basic non-associative algebraic structures viz. Smarandache groupoids. Smarandache groupoids exhibits simultaneously the properties of a semigroup and a groupoid.
