The Long Tale of Lie Groups

  • Pietro Giuseppe Fré
Chapter

Abstract

So far we outlined the conceptual development of group theory paying particular attention to finite groups. It is historically correct to do so, since finite groups were the first to be considered and studied. Indeed the very notion of group is to be credited to Galois and, by definition, Galois groups are finite.
