By Anthony W. Knapp

This booklet starts off with the common concept of Lie teams of matrices and arrives on the definition, common houses, and primary functions of cohomological induction, that is a lately found algebraic development of team representations. alongside how it develops the computational suggestions which are so very important in dealing with Lie teams. The ebook relies on a one-semester direction given on the country college of latest York, Stony Brook in fall, 1986 to an viewers having very little history in Lie teams yet drawn to seeing connections between algebra, geometry, and Lie theory.

These notes advance what's wanted past a primary graduate path in algebra with a view to delight in cohomological induction and to work out its first results. alongside the way in which one is ready to learn homological algebra with an important program in brain; as a result one sees simply what leads to that topic are basic and what effects are minor.
