Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 89.56This book methodically covers Analysis on manifolds, Lie groups and G-manifolds; Symplectic algebra and geometry, Hamiltonian systems, symmetries and reduction; Integrable systems and Hamilton-Jacobi theory, including Morse families, the Maslov class and more. more...

#### Lineare Darstellungen endlicher Gruppen

Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2013; US$ 34.80Dieses Buch besteht aus 16 Paragraphen, die in Niveau und Zielstel lung ziemlich unterschiedlich sind: Die Paragraphen 1-5 sind auf die Bediirfnisse der theoretischen Chemiker zugeschnitten. Sie legen den auf F'ROBENIUS zuriickgehenden Zusammen hang dar, der zwischen linearen Darstellungen und Charakteren besteht. Es handelt sich hierbei urn grundlegende... more...

#### Berkovich Spaces and Applications

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 67.17We present an introduction to Berkovich’s theory of non-archimedean analytic spaces that emphasizes its applications in various fields. The first part contains surveys of a foundational nature, including an introduction to Berkovich analytic spaces by M. Temkin, and to étale cohomology by A. Ducros, as well as a short note by C. Favre on the topology... more...

#### Lie Algebras of Finite and Affine Type

Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 108.00This book provides a thorough but relaxed mathematical treatment of Lie algebras. more...

#### Lie Algebras and Algebraic Groups

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 83.97The theory of groups and Lie algebras is interesting for many reasons. In the mathematical viewpoint, it employs at the same time algebra, analysis and geometry. On the other hand, it intervenes in other areas of science, in particularindi?erentbranchesofphysicsandchemistry.Itisanactivedomain of current research.

#### Structure Theory

De Gruyter 2004; US$ 252.00The problem of classifying the finite-dimensional simple Lie algebras over fields of characteristic p > 0 is a long-standing one. Work on this question during the last 45 years has been directed by the Kostrikin–Shafarevich Conjecture of 1966, which states that over an algebraically closed field of characteristic p > 5 a finite-dimensional... more...

#### Lie Algebras: Theory and Algorithms

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 175.00The aim of the present work is two-fold. Firstly it aims at a giving an account of many existing algorithms for calculating with finite-dimensional Lie algebras. Secondly, the book provides an introduction into the theory of finite-dimensional Lie algebras. These two subject areas are intimately related. First of all, the algorithmic perspective often... more...

#### Automorphic Forms and Lie Superalgebras

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 97.40A principal ingredient in the proof of the Moonshine Theorem, connecting the Monster group to modular forms, is the infinite dimensional Lie algebra of physical states of a chiral string on an orbifold of a 26 dimensional torus, called the Monster Lie algebra. It is a Borcherds-Kac-Moody Lie algebra with Lorentzian root lattice; and has an associated... more...

#### Naive Lie Theory

Springer New York 2008; US$ 41.23This book aims to fill a gap in the literature by introducing Lie theory to junior and senior level undergraduates. In order to achieve this, the author focuses on the so-called "classical groups,'' viewed as matrix groups with real, complex, or quaternion entries. This allows them to be studied by elementary methods from calculus and linear algebra.... more...
