Hossein Abbaspour and Martin Moskowitz

Basic Lie Theory
(World Scientific, Singapore, 2007)

This volume provides a comprehensive account of basic Lie theory, a subject at the center of mathematics. It is designed to be a text for a year's graduate course in Lie theory, bringing the student to the point of being able to embark on research in this subject and can also serve as a reference work for professional mathematicians specializing in other subjects. It covers, among other things, the structure of Lie algebras, Lie groups and their homogeneous spaces, Haar measure, symmetric spaces of non-compact type, and lattices. Hossein Abbaspour, a recent alumnus of the Ph.D. program in mathematics at the Graduate Center is currently an assistant professor at the University of Nantes, France. Martin Moskowitz is professor emeritus of mathematics at the Graduate Center.
