With a view towards algebraic groups? Numerous examples are given, including a classification of all 3-dimensional complex Lie algebras. The reason why you want to study Lie algebras can have a great impact on what books one would recommend.
This introcuction very hands down, they assume right away that you are working over the complex numbers. LowDimensional Lie Algebras Post as a guest Name.
Mark Wildon’s Website: Introduction to Lie algebras
An overview of further directions then concludes the book and shows the high degree to which Lie algebras influence present-day mathematics. My library Help Advanced Book Search. The next chapters cover Engel’s theorem, Lie’s theorem and Cartan’s criteria and introduce some representation theory. The eremann prerequisite knowledge needed is some linear algebra, most of which is summarised in an appendix.
This is followed by a discussion of solvable Lie algebras and a strategy towards a classification of finite-dimensional complex Lie algebras. Lie groups and Lie algebras?
Do you want to study solely the algebraic side? For background, I’ll just say that I was interested in algebraic groups, and later got interested in number theory and automorphic forms and so I then had to go back and learn about Lie groups.
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. Pie Erdmann is a well-known and respected algebraist at the international level, with extensive experience in writing and teaching.
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. Engels Theorem and Lies Theorem. The approach is very elementary.
