Group Theory in Physics
Supersymmetries and Infinite-Dimensional Algebras
- John Cornwell, University of Saint Andrews
Recent devopments, particularly in high-energy physics, have projected group theory and symmetry consideration into a central position in theoretical physics. These developments have taken physicists increasingly deeper into the fascinating world of pure mathematics. This work presents important mathematical developments of the last fifteen years in a form that is easy to comprehend and appreciate.
Theoretical and high-energy physicists, physicists interested in critical phenomena at the postgraduate and postdoctoral levels, and mathematicians.
