Description:

No markings in book. Binding is tight. From the Preface: A key feature of the book is the mixture of abstract theory and concrete example. In fact, there was a general plan for each chapter: to start with, a discussion of the theory, and then illustrate it in the case of some of the classical matrix groups. As a consequence of this procedure, we have given a detailed explicit description of the structure, representation theory, and differential geometry of the vast majority of compact Lie groups, which most readers are likely to encounter in practice.

About this title:

Synopsis: There are two approaches to compact lie groups: by computation as matrices or theoretically as manifolds with a group structure. The great appeal of this book is the blending of these two approaches. The theoretical results are illustrated by computations and the theory provides a commentary on the computational work. Indeed, there are extensive computations of the structure and representation theory for the classical groups SU(n), SO(n) and Sp(n). A second exciting feature is that the differential geometry of a compact Lie group, both the classical curvature studies and the more recent heat equation methods, are treated. A large number of formulas for the connection and curvature are conveniently gathered together.This book provides an excellent text for a first course in compact Lie groups.
