Download A Quantum Groups Primer (London Mathematical Society Lecture by Shahn Majid PDF

By Shahn Majid

This booklet presents a self-contained advent to quantum teams as algebraic items. according to the author's lecture notes from a component III natural arithmetic direction at Cambridge collage, it really is appropriate to be used as a textbook for graduate classes in quantum teams or as a complement to fashionable classes in complex algebra. The ebook assumes a history wisdom of uncomplicated algebra and linear algebra. a few familiarity with semisimple Lie algebras might even be beneficial. The booklet is aimed as a primer for mathematicians and takes a contemporary process top into knot conception, braided different types and noncommutative differential geometry. it may even be precious for mathematical physicists.

Operator Algebras: Theory of C*-Algebras and von Neumann Algebras: 122 (Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences)

This publication deals a entire advent to the final concept of C*-algebras and von Neumann algebras. starting with the fundamentals, the idea is built via such themes as tensor items, nuclearity and exactness, crossed items, K-theory, and quasidiagonality. The presentation rigorously and accurately explains the most gains of every a part of the idea of operator algebras; most vital arguments are at the very least defined and plenty of are provided in complete element.

Harmonic Analysis and Representation Theory for Groups Acting on Homogenous Trees (London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series)

Those notes deal with in complete aspect the speculation of representations of the gang of automorphisms of a homogeneous tree. The unitary irreducible representations are categorised in 3 varieties: a continual sequence of round representations; particular representations; and a countable sequence of cuspidal representations as outlined by way of G.

Groups of Prime Power Order. Volume 2 (De Gruyter Expositions in Mathematics)

This is often the second one of 3 volumes dedicated to trouble-free finite p-group thought. just like the 1st quantity, 1000's of vital effects are analyzed and, in lots of circumstances, simplified. vital themes provided during this monograph contain: (a) category of p-groups all of whose cyclic subgroups of composite orders are common, (b) category of 2-groups with precisely 3 involutions, (c) proofs of Ward's theorem on quaternion-free teams, (d) 2-groups with small centralizers of an involution, (e) category of 2-groups with precisely 4 cyclic subgroups of order 2n > 2, (f) new proofs of Blackburn's theorem on minimum nonmetacyclic teams, (g) class of p-groups all of whose subgroups of index p2 are abelian, (h) category of 2-groups all of whose minimum nonabelian subgroups have order eight, (i) p-groups with cyclic subgroups of index p2 are categorised.
