Lectures on Lie’ Algebras for Physicists

Conference paper
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 1/1965)


The organizers of this Schladming-Meeting on “SU3-Symmetry and Weak Interactions” asked me to give some lectures on the mathematics of Lie groups, just similar to those given by Salam at the “Seminar on Theoretical Physics” in Triest 1962. As A. Salam gave an ideal collection of those theorems, which a theoretician working on symmetry problems should know, I had a hard time in thinking how I could present the same stuff in a not identical manner.
