His main research interests are combinatorics and representation theory, especially the representation theory of the symmetric group.

The final chapter on further directions includes brief discussions of the representation theory of semisimple Lie algebras, finite groups of Lie type, Kac—Moody Lie algebras and the restricted Burnside problem. A section on low-dimensional Lie algebras provides readers with experience of some useful examples.

Email Required, but never shown. I started with Introduction to Lie algebras by Erdmann and Wildon. Wildon No preview available – The reprinted 1st edition, published Juneincludes most of these corrections. But this is a very good book, and it covers a wide range of topics.

From Mark Hunacek’s review for the Mathematical Gazette 92 no. Numerous examples are given, including a classification of all 3-dimensional complex Lie algebras. Could you provide some advice and recommend some books?

Mark Wildon’s Website: Introduction to Lie algebras

Engels Theorem and Lies Theorem. The authors also classify root systems, and give an outline of Serre’s construction of complex semisimple Lie algebras. Then I moved to Humphreys’ Introduction to Lie Algebras and Representation Theory which has already been mentioned and is the absolute best. And when you get to the classification of semisimple Lie algebras in Humphreys, I wrote a “big-picture” guide to the proof as an answer to math. As such, it is particularly aimed at 3rd and 4th year undergraduates, but we hope it will be useful to anyone who wants a gentle introduction to the subject.


Without more information, I would explain what I did when I wanted to learn about Lie algebras. You won’t get quite far with this book it covers the main definitions and gives the structure theorem for semisimple Lie algebrasbut if you do the exercises, you will have a good foundation.

Research Other Maths Teaching Miscellany. He is the co-author of a highly praised textbook on Lie algebras and in was awarded a university prize for teaching excellence. Introduction to Lie algebras Index. For this, you need some knowledge of topology and differential geometry, i.

The Root Space Decomposition.

Mathematics Stack Exchange works best with JavaScript enabled. Introduction to Lie 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 algebas final year and graduate students and researchers in mathematics and theoretical physics.

It is more terse than Erdmann and Wildon, and the exercises are more difficult, but it covers more.

introductikn Introduction to Lie Algebras. Lie groups and Lie algebras have become essential to many parts of mathematics and theoretical physics, with Lie algebras a central object of interest in their own right. An overview of further directions then concludes the book and shows the high degree to which Lie algebras influence present-day mathematics. Could you provide some information to why you will be doing this, as that will affect what sort of book will be the most useful.

Based on a lecture course given to fourth-year undergraduates, this book provides an elementary introduction to Lie algebras. The root-space decomposition of a semisimple Lie algebra is discussed, and the classical Lie algebras studied in detail. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
