Semi Simple Lie Algebras and Their Representations

The present volume is intended to meet the need of particle physicists for a book which is accessible to non-mathematicians. The focus is on the semi-simple Lie algebras, and especially on their representations since it is they, and not just the algebras themselves, which are of greatest interest to the physicist. Topics covered includes:The Killing Form, The Structure of Simple Lie Algebras, A Little about Representations, Structure of Simple Lie Algebras, Simple Roots and the Cartan Matrix, The Classical Lie Algebras, The Exceptional Lie Algebras, Casimir Operators and Freudenthal’s Formula, The Weyl Group, Weyl’s Dimension Formula, Reducing Product Representations, Subalgebras and Branching Rules.
