Symmetry, Representations, and Invariants (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)

By Roe Goodman

Symmetry is a key element in lots of mathematical, actual, and organic theories. utilizing illustration concept and invariant thought to research the symmetries that come up from staff activities, and with powerful emphasis at the geometry and uncomplicated thought of Lie teams and Lie algebras, Symmetry, Representations, and Invariants is an important remodeling of an past highly-acclaimed paintings by way of the authors. the result's a complete creation to Lie conception, illustration thought, invariant conception, and algebraic teams, in a brand new presentation that's extra obtainable to scholars and features a broader diversity of applications.

The philosophy of the sooner e-book is retained, i.e., proposing the critical theorems of illustration thought for the classical matrix teams as motivation for the final concept of reductive teams. The wealth of examples and dialogue prepares the reader for the full arguments now given within the basic case.

Key gains of Symmetry, Representations, and Invariants: (1) Early chapters appropriate for honors undergraduate or starting graduate classes, requiring in basic terms linear algebra, uncomplicated summary algebra, and complicated calculus; (2) functions to geometry (curvature tensors), topology (Jones polynomial through symmetry), and combinatorics (symmetric workforce and younger tableaux); (3) Self-contained chapters, appendices, entire bibliography; (4) greater than 350 workouts (most with specified tricks for ideas) additional discover major techniques; (5) Serves as a great major textual content for a one-year path in Lie workforce concept; (6) merits physicists in addition to mathematicians as a reference work.
