Introduction to lie algebras and representation theory an excellent introduction to the subject ideal for a one semester graduate coursethe american mathematical monthly exceptionally well written and ideally suited either for independent reading or as a text for an introduction to lie algebras and their representationsmathematical reviews. Of the classical simple lie algebras knapp contains a detailed account of the general theory and also discussed real lie algebras and lie groups two other recommendable texts which only discuss lie algebras are the books introduction to lie algebras and representation theory by je humphreys and notes on lie algebras by h samel son. This book is designed to introduce the reader to the theory of semisimple lie algebras over an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0 with emphasis on representations a good knowledge of lin. For anybody interested in offering an undergraduate course on lie algebras perhaps say as a senior seminar today i would recommend erdmann and wildons introduction to lie algebras also published by springer in a different series or if you want a course more focused on representation theory than on the classification theory . This book is designed to introduce the reader to the theory of semisimple lie algebras over an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0 with emphasis on representations a good knowledge of linear algebra including eigenvalues bilinear forms euclidean spaces and tensor products of vector
