*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

"The main purpose of this book is to present an updated modern approach to physical theories thorough symmetry methods. ... this book describes rather well the not always easy to understand subject of symmetry methods in physics, and will be a valuable addition to the bibliography for any interested reader, and even for the expert ... ." (Rutwig Campoamor-Stursberg, zbMATH 1330.81005, 2016)"This book should be a must for every science and math undergraduate. It is the right way to introduce physics to young students and a significant improvement on the way in which undergraduate courses started with classical physics. The beauty of the subject is made obvious and the built up of the field of physics is clearly illustrated; without compromising on the maths. ... I would recommend this book to anybody."
