**Roots of a Compact Lie Group**

by **Kristopher Tapp** - **arXiv** , **2009**

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.

**Introductory Treatise On Lie's Theory Of Finite Continuous Transformation Groups**

by **John Edward Campbell** - **Oxford Clarendon Press** , **1903**

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.

**Lectures on Discrete Subgroups of Lie Groups**

by **G.D. Mostow** - **Tata Institute of Fundamental Research** , **1969**

Contents: Preliminaries; Complexification of a real Linear Lie Group; Intrinsic characterization of K* and E; R-regular elements; Discrete Subgroups; Some Ergodic Properties of Discrete Subgroups; Real Forms of Semi-simple Algebraic Groups; etc.

**Lectures on Lie Groups and Representations of Locally Compact Groups**

by **F. Bruhat** - **Tata Institute of Fundamental Research** , **1958**

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.

**Lecture Notes in Lie Groups**

by **Vladimir G. Ivancevic, Tijana T. Ivancevic** - **arXiv** , **2011**

These notes are designed for a 1-semester third year or graduate course in mathematics, physics, or biology. We give both physical and medical examples of Lie groups. The only necessary background are advanced calculus and linear algebra.

**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.
