By Arvanitogeorgos, Andreas

It really is impressive that lots approximately Lie teams can be packed into this small publication. yet after analyzing it, scholars could be well-prepared to proceed with extra complicated, graduate-level issues in differential geometry or the speculation of Lie teams.

The concept of Lie teams contains many parts of arithmetic: algebra, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, research, and differential equations. during this booklet, Arvanitoyeorgos outlines adequate of the must haves to get the reader began. He then chooses a course via this wealthy and numerous conception that goals for an figuring out of the geometry of Lie teams and homogeneous areas. during this approach, he avoids the additional aspect wanted for an intensive dialogue of illustration conception.

Lie teams and homogeneous areas are particularly helpful to check in geometry, as they supply first-class examples the place amounts (such as curvature) are more uncomplicated to compute. an outstanding knowing of them presents lasting instinct, in particular in differential geometry.

The writer offers numerous examples and computations. subject matters mentioned contain the category of compact and hooked up Lie teams, Lie algebras, geometrical facets of compact Lie teams and reductive homogeneous areas, and critical sessions of homogeneous areas, corresponding to symmetric areas and flag manifolds. functions to extra complicated themes also are incorporated, resembling homogeneous Einstein metrics, Hamiltonian platforms, and homogeneous geodesics in homogeneous areas.

The new version of Uwe Flick's bestselling textbook has been totally revised, improved and up to date. An advent to Qualitative examine guides students step by step throughout the qualitative research process.

This vintage textual content covers all the major theoretical techniques to qualitative examine, and offers unequalled insurance of the complete diversity of other qualitative tools and methods now to be had to researchers.

A variety of latest positive aspects were further to the recent variation including:

• New constitution to higher meet the wishes of training qualitative study
• a brand new bankruptcy on Grounded conception plus up to date insurance at the complete variety of alternative qualitative methods
• A precis part discussing the cutting-edge in qualitative study
