Sophus Lie's 1880 transformation group paper by Sophus Lie( Book )

82 editions published between 1888 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This modern translation of Sophus Lie's and Friedrich Engel's ℓ́ℓTheorie der Transformationsgruppen Band Iℓ́ℓ will allow readers to discover the striking conceptual clarity and remarkably systematic organizational thought of the original German text. Volume I presents a comprehensive introduction to the theory and is mainly directed towards the generalization of ideas drawn from the study of examples. The major part of the present volume offers an extremely clear translation of the lucid original. The first four chapters provide not only a translation, but also a contemporary approach, which will help present day readers to familiarize themselves with the concepts at the heart of the subject. The editor's main objective was to encourage a renewed interest in the detailed classification of Lie algebras in dimensions 1, 2 and 3, and to offer access to Sophus Lie's monumental Galois theory of continuous transformation groups, established at the end of the 19th Century. Lie groups are widespread in mathematics, playing a role in representation theory, algebraic geometry, Galois theory, the theory of partial differential equations, and also in physics, for example in general relativity. This volume℗ℓis of interest to researchers in Lie theory and exterior differential systems and also to historians of mathematics. The prerequisites are a basic knowledge of differential calculus, ordinary differential equations and differential geometry

Lie Algebras is based on lectures given by the author at the Institute of Mathematics, Academia Sinica. This book discusses the fundamentals of the Lie algebras theory formulated by S. Lie. The author explains that Lie algebras are algebraic structures employed when one studies Lie groups. The book also explains Engel's theorem, nilpotent linear Lie algebras, as well as the existence of Cartan subalgebras and their conjugacy. The text also addresses the Cartan decompositions and root systems of semi-simple Lie algebras and the dependence of structure of semi-simple Lie algebras on root systems. The text explains in details the fundamental systems of roots of semi simple Lie algebras and Weyl groups including the properties of the latter. The book addresses the group of automorphisms and the derivation algebra of a Lie algebra and Schur's lemma. The book then shows the characters of irreducible representations of semi simple Lie algebras. This book can be useful for students in advance algebra or who have a background in linear algebra
