Mark Wildon’s Website: Introduction to Lie algebras

Do you want to study solely the algebraic side? It is more terse than Erdmann and Wildon, and the exercises are more introducyion, but it covers more. These free notes by Alistair Savage are an excellent introduction based on Stillwell’s and Hall’s books. Naive Lie Theory by Stillwell. Then, you might want more heavy-duty stuff. As a second introduction to representation theory llie finite groups? The Root Space Decomposition.

Could you provide some advice and recommend some books? M Turgeon 7, 3 30 But this is a very good book, and it covers a wide range of topics.

From Mark Hunacek’s review for the Mathematical Gazette 92 no. Representations of sl2 C. With a view towards algebraic groups?


Introduction to Lie Algebras. This is very hands down, they assume right away that you are working over the complex numbers.

Then I moved to Humphreys’ Introduction to Lie Algebras and Representation Theory which has already been mentioned and is the absolute best. His main research interests are combinatorics and representation theory, especially the representation theory of the symmetric group.

Introduction to Lie Algebrasby Karin Erdmann and me, was published in Introduction to Lie Algebras K. Without more information, I would explain what I did when I wanted to learn about Lie algebras. He is the co-author of a highly praised textbook on Lie algebras introducction in was awarded a university prize for teaching excellence.

Introduction to Lie Algebras – K. Erdmann, Mark J. Wildon – Google Books

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

The only prerequisite is some linear algebra and an appendix summarizes itnroduction main facts that are needed. Wildon No preview available – It is based on 4th year courses given by the authors in Oxford. Based on a lecture course given to fourth-year undergraduates, this book provides an elementary introduction to Lie algebras.


An overview of further directions then concludes the book and shows the high degree to which Lie algebras influence present-day mathematics. Post as a guest Name.

The final intrlduction 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.

ErdmannMark J. The next chapters cover Engel’s theorem, Lie’s theorem and Cartan’s criteria and introduce some representation theory.

This is followed by a discussion of solvable Lie algebras and a strategy towards a classification of finite-dimensional complex Lie algebras. Numerous examples are given, including a classification of all 3-dimensional complex Lie algebras. Answers to Selected Exercises The authors also classify root systems, and give an outline of Serre’s construction of complex semisimple Lie algebras.
