Lie groups, physics, and geometry : an introduction for physicists, engineers and chemists [EBook] / Robert Gilmore.
Describing many of the most important aspects of Lie group theory, this book presents the subject in a 'hands on' way. Rather than concentrating on theorems and proofs, the book shows the applications of the material to physical sciences and applied mathematics. Many examples of Lie groups...
