The second part covers the theory of semisimple Lie groups and Lie algebras, beginning with a detailed analysis of the representations of SU(3). The author illustrates the general theory with numerous images pertaining to Lie algebras of rank two and rank three, including images of root systems, lattices of dominant integral weights, and weight /5(4). The book is intended for graduate students of theoretical physics (with a background in quantum mechanics) as well as researchers interested in applications of Lie group theory and Lie algebras in physics. The emphasis is on the inter-relations of representation theories of .

The properties of the algebras su(2), su(3) and su(4) are investigated in detail. Geometric models of the representations are developed. A lot of care is taken over the use of the term "multiplet of an algebra". The book features an elementary (matrix) access to su(N)-algebras, and gives a first insight into Lie algebras.

In the study of the representation theory of Lie groups, the study of representations of SU(2) is fundamental to the study of representations of semisimple Lie is the first case of a Lie group that is both a compact group and a non-abelian first condition implies the representation theory is discrete: representations are direct sums of a collection of basic.

Abstract. The basis elements of the matrix algebra su(2) and the corresponding structure constants are detail it is shown that the Lie group SU(2) “corresponds” to the algebra su(2).Another detailed calculation yields the basis matrices of the adjoint representation of su(2).They are used to make up the Killing form of su(2).Author: Walter Pfeifer.

The book Lie Groups, Lie Algebras, and Representations – An Elementary Introduction from Brian Hall is a good book, as well. It doesn't read as good, but it seems to be nice as a reference book.

In mathematics, a Lie algebra (pronounced / l iː / "Lee") is a vector space together with an operation called the Lie bracket, an alternating bilinear map × →, (,) ↦ [,], satisfying the Jacobi vector space together with this operation is a non-associative algebra, meaning that the Lie bracket is not necessarily associative.

While standard texts on quantum field theory and particle physics mostly adequately cover the more pedestrian groups like SU(2), SO(3), etc, SU(3) is too complicated to be done justice by only the topical, passing mention given in these books/5.

Regarding other types of Lie groups, we can note that above we have also classified the simple complex Lie algebras and groups.

One can also show that any connected Lie group is topologically the product of a compact Lie group and a Euclidean space \({\mathbb{R}^{n}}\).
