Introduction to the Theory of Lie Groups (Universitext)
Written in the author’s inimitable styleIncludes full background on topological groups and groupquotientsContains many exercises and concrete examplesRequires only basic knowledge of topology and algebra——————————This textbook covers the general theory of Lie groups. By firstconsidering the case of linear groups (following von Neumann'smethod) before proceeding to the general case, the reader isnaturally introduced to Lie theory.Written by a master of the subject and influential member of theBourbaki group, the French edition of this textbook has been usedby several generations of students. This translation preserves thedistinctive style and lively exposition of the original. Requiringonly basics of topology and algebra, this book offers an engagingintroduction to Lie groups for graduate students and a valuableresource for researchers.
