A Quantum Groups Primer (London Mathematical Society Lecture by Shahn Majid

By Shahn Majid

This booklet offers a self-contained advent to quantum teams as algebraic gadgets. in accordance with the author's lecture notes from a component III natural arithmetic path at Cambridge college, it's compatible to be used as a textbook for graduate classes in quantum teams or as a complement to trendy classes in complex algebra. The ebook assumes a history wisdom of simple algebra and linear algebra. a few familiarity with semisimple Lie algebras could even be priceless. The e-book is aimed as a primer for mathematicians and takes a latest strategy major into knot thought, braided different types and noncommutative differential geometry. it's going to even be helpful for mathematical physicists.

Lie Groups and Lie Algebras for Physicists

The ebook is meant for graduate scholars of theoretical physics (with a historical past in quantum mechanics) in addition to researchers attracted to functions of Lie workforce idea and Lie algebras in physics. The emphasis is at the inter-relations of illustration theories of Lie teams and the corresponding Lie algebras.

Finite Fields (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)

The speculation of finite fields is a department of algebra that has come to the fore due to its different purposes in such components as combinatorics, coding idea and the mathematical learn of switching ciruits. This publication is dedicated totally to the idea of finite fields, and it presents accomplished insurance of the literature.

Stable Groups (London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series)

The research of sturdy teams connects version idea, algebraic geometry and workforce concept. It analyses teams which own a definite very common dependence relation (Shelah's idea of 'forking'), and attempts to derive structural houses from this. those might be group-theoretic (nilpotency or solubility of a given group), algebro-geometric (identification of a bunch as an algebraic group), or model-theoretic (description of the definable sets).

Whitehead Groups of Finite Groups (London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series)

This book's objective is to make obtainable ideas for learning Whitehead teams of finite teams, in addition to numerous comparable issues comparable to induction conception and p-adic logarithms. the writer has incorporated a long advent to set the scene for non-specialists who wish an summary of the sector, its background and its functions.
