That said having had Weyl's Space, Time, Matter for many years
I'm used to his notation, but here he is very intense in his presentation
and somewhat less than clear. As he is the founder of gauge group theory
one expects some mathematics, just not where it seems more difficult than necessary?
Also the, now, standard classifications of Cartan groups aren't mentioned ( although might be
because of the original publishing date of 1939?).
I got this book looking for the Weyl root groups used in making Cartan invariant matrices
which I couldn't find.
So on these points the book is a disappointment while still being a classic text.
