Introduction to Lie Algebras K. Introduction to Lie Algebrasby Karin Erdmann and me, was published in Introduction to Lie Algebras covers the core material required for almost all other work in Lie theory and provides a self-study guide suitable for undergraduate students in their final year and graduate students and researchers in mathematics and theoretical physics.


I started with Introduction to Lie algebras by Erdmann and Wildon.

Sign up using Email and Password. An overview of further directions then concludes the book and shows the high degree to which Lie algebras influence present-day mathematics.

It is more terse than Erdmann and Wildon, and the exercises are more difficult, but it covers more.

You can read it like a Harry Potter storybook. The only prerequisite is some linear algebra and an appendix summarizes the main facts that are needed. Here is the current errata last updated October Wildon No preview available – ErdmannMark J.

From Mark Hunacek’s review for the Mathematical Gazette 92 introcuction. As such, it is particularly aimed at 3rd and 4th year undergraduates, but we hope it will be useful to anyone who wants a gentle introduction to the subject. Could you provide some information to why you will be doing this, as that will affect what sort of book will be the most useful.

With a view towards algebraic groups? Email Required, but never shown. Engels Theorem and Lies Theorem. This is followed by a discussion of solvable Lie algebras and a strategy towards a classification of finite-dimensional complex Lie algebras.

The final chapter on further directions includes brief discussions of the representation theory of semisimple Lie algebras, finite groups of Lie type, Kac—Moody Lie algebras and the restricted Burnside problem. The Root Space Decomposition.


The root space decompositions of the classical Lie algebras are worked out in detail. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service. Do you want to study solely the algebraic side?

Post as a guest Name. 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. Answers to Selected Exercises A section on low-dimensional Lie algebras provides readers with experience of some useful examples.

His main research interests are combinatorics and representation theory, especially the representation theory of the symmetric group. LowDimensional Lie Algebras Karin Erdmann is a well-known and respected algebraist at the international level, with extensive experience in writing and teaching.

The treatment is kept as simple as possible with no attempt at full generality. The authors also classify root systems, and qlgebras an outline of Serre’s construction of complex semisimple Lie algebras.
