Introduction to Lie Algebras by Karin Erdmann
For latter chapters, there are many “jumps” which may be at times messy and need quite a lot of efforts to fill, and quite nontrivial ones. As such, it is particularly aimed at 3rd and 4th year undergraduates, but we hope it will be useful erdmajn anyone who wants a gentle introduction to the subject. A section on low-dimensional Lie algebras provid Lie groups and Lie algebras have become essential to many parts of mathematics and theoretical physics, with Lie algebras a central object of interest in their own right.
Numerous worked examples and exercises are provided to test understanding, along with more demanding problems, several of which have solutions.
Josep-Angel Herrero Bajo marked it as to-read Jul 23, On one hand it is alright if one has huge mastery of linear algebra, but otherwise a modest amount of knowledge in linear algebra sometimes isn’t enough. The next chapters cover Engel’s theorem, Lie’s theorem and Cartan’s criteria and introduce some representation theory. But overall, it does allow undergraduates to taste Lie algebra quite early.

The treatment is kept as simple as possible with no attempt at full generality. An overview of further directions then concludes the book and shows the high degree to which Lie algebras influence present-day mathematics.

The authors also classify root systems, and give an outline of Serre’s construction of complex semisimple Lie algebras. An overview of further directions then concludes the book and shows the high degree to which Lie algebras influence present-day mathematics.
