Editorial Reviews


The book is clearly written … In addition to references, there are copious problems at the end of each chapter which add to the value of the book … This readable text will be of value to theoreticians entering the area of quantum field theory and also to more seasoned researchers in other areas of physics who wish to remind themselves of the basic group theoretical underpinning of that most fundamental of all physical theories.
—Allan I. Solomon, Contemporary Physics, 52, 2011

This book provides a lucid and readable account of group theory relevant to gauge theories and is a welcome addition to the available texts in the area. … The presentation of difficult topics is clear and suitable for a reader new to the subject, while enough material is included to make this book useful as a reference for more experienced researchers. … The material is a pleasure to read and enlightening. … Overall, this book is well written and presents this important topic in an excellent and clear way. … readers with a more theoretical background will find this book an essential read. In conclusion, every student and researcher in high energy physics should read this excellent book.
—Robert Appleby, Reviews, Volume 11, Issue 2, 2010

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a (perhaps too) quick graduate level review of the way symmetry appears in high energy physics as expressed in Lie groups and algebras. This text is neither an introduction nor an overview. Rather it is a brief statement of the ideas without proof and little motivation.

The Kindle version is nicely presented as a print replica rather than the mobi format (which is quite ill suited to texts with significant mathematical content.)
