    Lie algebras, and Lie groups, are named after Sophus Lie (pronounced “lee”), a Norwegian mathematician who lived in the latter half of the 19th century. He studied continuous symmetries (i.e., the Lie groups above) of geometric objects called manifolds, and their derivatives (i.e., the . This book is designed to introduce the reader to the theory of semisimple Lie algebras over an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0, with emphasis on representations. A good knowledge of linear algebra (including eigenvalues, bilinear forms, euclidean spaces, and tensor products of vector spaces) is presupposed, as well as some acquaintance with the methods of abstract algebra.4/5(1).

    Describing many of the most important aspects of Lie group theory, this book presents the subject in a 'hands on' way. Rather than concentrating on theorems and proofs, the book shows the applications of the material to physical sciences and applied mathematics. Many examples of Lie groups and Lie algebras are given throughout the text. The basic terminology here is confusing. Some of the terminology is coming from the fact that Lie algebras are algebras over fields, albeit strange non-associative ones, so for instance an ideal of a Lie algebra is an exactly what it is for any other algebra or ring: we .

There is a modern book on Lie groups, namely "Structure and Geometry of Lie Groups" by Hilgert and Neeb. It is a lovely book. It starts with matrix groups, develops them in great details, then goes on to do Lie algebras and then delves into abstract Lie Theory.

You won't get quite far with this book (it covers the main definitions and gives the structure theorem for semisimple Lie algebras), but if you do the exercises, you will have a good foundation.

Then I moved to Humphreys' Introduction to Lie Algebras and Representation Theory (which has already been mentioned and is the absolute best).

It is.This book has grown out of a set of lecture notes I had prepared for a course on Lie groups in When I lectured again on the subject inI revised the notes substantially. It is the revised version that is now appearing in book form. The theory of Lie groups plays a fundamental role in many areas of mathematics.

There are a number of books on the subject currently available -most.It can be shown that semisimple algebras are direct sums of simple Lie algebras. A reductive Lie algebra is the direct sum of an abelian algebra and a semisimple algebra, with both nonvanishing.

This is the case of interest for non-abelian gauge theory. In these algebras the radical equals the center (the abelian algebra). Size: KB.
