Course on Lie groups: general theory, January - February 2001

This course is part of the kernvak Lie-groepen. A second course in this kernvak is Abstract harmonic analysis (lecturer N.P. Landsman).

Lecturer: T.H. Koornwinder

Location and time:
room P015A, Tuesday 11.15-13.00 hour and Wednesday 13.15-16.00 hour.

Course material:
Lecture notes will be provided. Part of these notes will closely follow Chapters 1,2,5 in G. Segal's lecture notes on Lie groups, which form the middle part of the book:
R. Carter, G. Segal and I. Macdonald, Lectures on Lie groups and Lie algebras, London Mathematical Society Student Texts 32, Cambridge University Press, 1995.
