Lie Groups, Lie Algebras, and Cohomology by Anthony W. Knapp
Book DescriptionThis book starts with the elementary theory of Lie groups of matrices and arrives at the definition, elementary properties, and first applications of cohomological induction, which is a recently discovered algebraic construction of group representations. Along the way it develops the computational techniques that are so important in handling Lie groups. The book is based on a one-semester course given at the State University of New York, Stony Brook in fall, 1986 to an audience having little or no background in Lie groups but interested in seeing connections among algebra, geometry, and Lie theory. These notes develop what is needed beyond a first graduate course in algebra in order to appreciate cohomological induction and to see its first consequences. Along the way one is able to study homological algebra with a significant application in mind; consequently one sees just what results in that subject are fundamental and what results are minor.

Books By Author Anthony W. Knapp
Representation Theory of Semisimple Groups, Paperback (September 2001)
Offers a survey of representation theory of semisimple Lie groups. Suitable for both graduate students and researchers, this book states the theorems precisely, and gives many illustrative examples or classes of examples. It includes for the reader a useful 300-item bibliography and an extensive section of notes.
Cohomological Induction and Unitary Representations, Hardback (May 1995)
Offers a systematic treatment of the development and use of cohomological induction to construct unitary representations. This book develops the necessary background in representation theory and includes an introductory chapter of motivation, a treatment of the "translation principle"ï¿½', and four appendices on algebra and analysis.
Elliptic Curves, Paperback (October 1992)» View all books by Anthony W. Knapp
An elliptic curve is a particular kind of cubic equation in two variables whose projective solutions form a group. Developing, with many examples, the elementary theory of elliptic curves, this book goes on to the subject of modular forms and the first connections with elliptic curves.
