*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews of the second edition: "This is a graduate math level text. Concise with lots of proofs. The chapters are short enough to read in one sitting. ... I was asked to look for books on this topic. It was challenging to search for material with this title. This was the best book that I could find. I look forward to exploring this topic further." (Mary Anne, Cats and Dogs with Data, maryannedata.com, April, 2014) "The book begins with a detailed explanation of the basic facts. ... It contains a discussion of very nontrivial modern applications of Lie group theory in other areas of mathematics. ... The text is very interesting and is superior to other textbooks on Lie group theory." (Dmitri Artamonov, zbMATH, Vol. 1279, 2014) "This second edition of a successful graduate textbook and reference is now divided in four parts. ... the book under review is the one every one of us must have on its desk or night table. ... this is a well-organized book with clear and well-established goals, taking the interested reader to the frontiers of today's research."
