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.

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.
