by Robert N. Cahn

**Publisher**: The Benjamin/Cummings Publishing 1984**ISBN/ASIN**: 0486449998**Number of pages**: 164

**Description**:

Designed to acquaint students of particle physics already familiar with SU(2) and SU(3) with techniques applicable to all simple Lie algebras, this text is especially suited to the study of grand unification theories. Subjects include simple roots and the Cartan matrix, the classical and exceptional Lie algebras, the Weyl group, and more.
