Group Theory and Physics by S. Sternberg

By S. Sternberg

This textbook, according to classes taught at Harvard collage, is an advent to crew thought and its program to physics. The actual functions are regarded as the mathematical concept is constructed in order that the presentation is surprisingly cohesive and well-motivated. Many glossy themes are handled, and there's a lot dialogue of the crowd SU(n) and its representations. this can be of serious value in simple particle physics. purposes to good country physics also are thought of. This stimulating account will turn out to be an important source for senior undergraduate scholars and their teachers.

Higher Structures in Geometry and Physics: In Honor of by Alberto S. Cattaneo,Anthony Giaquinto,Ping Xu

By Alberto S. Cattaneo,Anthony Giaquinto,Ping Xu

This booklet is headquartered round greater algebraic constructions stemming from the paintings of Murray Gerstenhaber and Jim Stasheff which are now ubiquitous in quite a few components of arithmetic— reminiscent of algebra, algebraic topology, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, mathematical physics— and in theoretical physics reminiscent of quantum box idea and string thought. those better algebraic constructions supply a typical language crucial within the research of deformation quantization, concept of algebroids and groupoids, symplectic box conception, and lots more and plenty extra. every one contribution during this quantity expands at the principles of Gerstenhaber and Stasheff. the quantity is meant for post-graduate scholars, mathematical and theoretical physicists, and mathematicians drawn to better structures.

The Theory of Fusion Systems: An Algebraic Approach by David A. Craven

By David A. Craven

Fusion platforms are a up to date improvement in finite staff conception and take a seat on the intersection of algebra and topology. This ebook is the 1st to deal comprehensively with this new and increasing box, taking the reader from the fundamentals of the speculation correct to the state-of-the-art. 3 motivational chapters, indicating the interplay of fusion and fusion platforms in team conception, illustration thought and topology are via six chapters that discover the speculation of fusion structures themselves. beginning with the elemental definitions, the themes coated contain: weakly basic and basic subsystems; morphisms and quotients; saturation theorems; effects approximately keep an eye on of fusion; and the neighborhood conception of fusion platforms. on the finish there's additionally a dialogue of unique fusion structures. Designed to be used as a textual content and reference paintings, this booklet is acceptable for graduate scholars and specialists alike.

The Orbit Method in Geometry and Physics: In Honor of A.A. by Christian Duval,Laurent Guieu,Valentin Ovsienko

By Christian Duval,Laurent Guieu,Valentin Ovsienko

The orbit process motivated the improvement of numerous parts of arithmetic within the moment half the 20 th century and continues to be an invaluable and strong software in such parts as Lie conception, illustration thought, integrable platforms, advanced geometry, and mathematical physics. one of the exotic names linked to the orbit strategy is that of A.A. Kirillov, whose pioneering paper on nilpotent orbits (1962), locations him because the founding father of orbit thought. the unique learn papers during this quantity are written via favorite mathematicians and mirror contemporary achievements in orbit idea and different heavily similar parts comparable to harmonic research, classical illustration concept, Lie superalgebras, Poisson geometry, and quantization. individuals: A. Alekseev, J. Alev, V. Baranovksy, R. Brylinski, J. Dixmier, S. Evens, D.R. Farkas, V. Ginzburg, V. Gorbounov, P. Grozman, E. Gutkin, A. Joseph, D. Kazhdan, A.A. Kirillov, B. Kostant, D. Leites, F. Malikov, A. Melnikov, P.W. Michor, Y.A. Neretin, A. Okounkov, G. Olshanski, F. Petrov, A. Polishchuk, W. Rossmann, A. Sergeev, V. Schechtman, I. Shchepochkina. The paintings can be a useful reference for researchers within the above pointed out fields, in addition to an invaluable textual content for graduate seminars and courses.

Self-Dual Codes and Invariant Theory: 17 (Algorithms and by Gabriele Nebe,Eric M. Rains,Neil J. A. Sloane

By Gabriele Nebe,Eric M. Rains,Neil J. A. Sloane

One of the main impressive and lovely theorems in coding conception is Gleason's 1970 theorem concerning the weight enumerators of self-dual codes and their connections with invariant concept, which has encouraged 1000s of papers approximately generalizations and functions of this theorem to varieties of codes. This self-contained booklet develops a brand new conception that's robust sufficient to incorporate the entire past generalizations.

Clifford Algebras and Spinors (London Mathematical Society by Pertti Lounesto

By Pertti Lounesto

during this e-book, Professor Lounesto deals a distinct creation to Clifford algebras and spinors. The preliminary chapters might be learn by means of undergraduates; vectors, advanced numbers and quaternions are brought with a watch on Clifford algebras. the following chapters also will curiosity physicists, and contain remedies of the quantum mechanics of the electron, electromagnetism and particular relativity with a flavour of Clifford algebras. This publication additionally provides the 1st accomplished survey of modern study on Clifford algebras. a brand new category of spinors is brought, according to bilinear covariants of actual observables. This unearths a brand new type of spinors, living among the Weyl, Majorana and Dirac spinors. Scalar items of spinors are categorised via involutory anti-automorphisms of Clifford algebras. This ends up in the chessboard of automorphism teams of scalar items of spinors. at the analytic facet, Brauer-Wall teams and Witt earrings are mentioned, and Caucy's fundamental formulation is generalized to better dimensions.

Representation Theory of Symmetric Groups (Discrete by Pierre-Loic Meliot

By Pierre-Loic Meliot

Representation idea of Symmetric Groups is the main updated summary algebra e-book with reference to symmetric teams and illustration conception. using new learn and effects, this publication will be studied from a combinatorial, algorithmic or algebraic perspective.

This e-book is a wonderful method of introducing today’s scholars to illustration thought of the symmetric teams, particularly classical conception. From there, the ebook explains how the idea should be prolonged to different comparable combinatorial algebras just like the Iwahori-Hecke algebra.

In a transparent and concise demeanour, the writer provides the case that almost all calculations on symmetric crew might be played by using acceptable algebras of services. therefore, the publication explains how a few Hopf algebras (symmetric features and generalizations) can be utilized to encode lots of the combinatorial homes of the representations of symmetric teams.

Overall, the ebook is an leading edge creation to illustration concept of symmetric teams for graduate scholars and researchers looking new methods of thought.

By C. M. Campbell,E. F. Robertson

This ebook comprises chosen papers from the overseas convention 'Groups - St Andrews 1981', which was once held on the collage of St Andrews in July/August 1981. Its contents mirror the most subject matters of the convention: combinatorial staff thought; endless teams; common teams, finite or countless; computational crew idea. 4 classes, every one offering a five-lecture survey, given by way of J. Neubuser (Aachen), D. J. S. Robinson (Illinois), S. J. Tobin (Galway) and J. Wiengold (Cardiff), were multiplied into articles, forming the 1st a part of the ebook. the second one half includes surveys and learn articles written via different convention individuals. greater than two-thirds of the ebook consists of survey articles delivering a remarkably transparent and up to date photograph of these components of team concept. The articles which contain this e-book, including their wide bibliographies, will turn out a useful instrument to researchers in crew conception, and, moreover, their specified expositions cause them to very compatible for appropriate postgraduate courses.
