This advent to the illustration idea of compact Lie teams follows Herman Weyl’s unique technique. It discusses all features of finite-dimensional Lie conception, regularly emphasizing the teams themselves. hence, the presentation is extra geometric and analytic than algebraic. it's a helpful reference and a resource of specific computations. each one part incorporates a diversity of workouts, and 24 figures aid illustrate geometric options.

Weyl Transforms

The practical analytic homes of Weyl transforms as bounded linear operators on $ L^{2}({\Bbb R}^{n}) $ are studied by way of the symbols of the transforms. The boundedness, the compactness, the spectrum and the useful calculus of the Weyl remodel are proved intimately. New effects and methods at the boundedness and compactness of the Weyl transforms when it comes to the symbols in $ L^{r}({\Bbb R}^{2n}) $ and when it comes to the Wigner transforms of Hermite capabilities are given.

Discrete Groups and Geometry

This quantity encompasses a collection of refereed papers awarded in honour of A. M. Macbeath, one of many top researchers within the zone of discrete teams. the topic has been of a lot present curiosity of past due because it comprises the interplay of a couple of various themes resembling crew conception, hyperbolic geometry, and complicated research.

Transformations of Manifolds and Application to Differential Equations

The interplay among differential geometry and partial differential equations has been studied because the final century. This courting relies at the undeniable fact that lots of the neighborhood homes of manifolds are expressed by way of partial differential equations. The correspondence among convinced periods of manifolds and the linked differential equations will be priceless in methods.
