Naive Lie Theory

Ranked #39 in Abstract Algebra

This 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. Each chapter is enhanced with numerous exercises, discussion of further results, and historical comments. less
