The only prerequisite is some linear algebra and an appendix summarizes the main facts that are needed.

ErdmannMark J. A section on low-dimensional Lie algebras provides readers with experience of some useful examples.

## Introduction to Lie Algebras

The only prerequisite knowledge needed is some linear algebra, most of which is summarised in an appendix. Introduction to Inttroduction 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.

Introduction to Lie Algebras. The next chapters cover Engel’s theorem, Lie’s theorem and Cartan’s criteria and introduce some representation theory.

Choice of phrasing is also at times a bit confusing e. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. It starts with basic concepts. The treatment is kept as simple as possible with no attempt at full generality.

I think this book is well-written for first few chapters: Fotis is currently reading it Oct 08, The root space decompositions of the classical Lie algebras are worked out in detail.

But overall, it does allow undergraduates to taste Lie algebra quite early. It starts with basic concepts.

Fran Burstall added it Jan 04, Trivia About Introduction to L George H is currently reading it Oct 14, This is followed by a discussion of solvable Lie algebras and a strategy towards a classification of finite-dimensional complex Lie algebras. On one hand it is alright if one has huge mastery of linear algebra, but otherwise a modest amount of knowledge in linear algebra sometimes isn’t enough.
