Good for self-study
An excellent way to learn group theory
A Classic Text
Comprehensive but Dated
Outdated notation and very dull Most of the notation used in this book (it was published 36 years ago) is out of date, which can be annoying as it makes the confusion subject of group theory even more confusing. The good thing about this book is that it's great value for money. However, as said above, it might contain too much if you're an undergraduate student like myself who just wants to understand the basic stuff. ... Read more |

Editorial Review Product Description The new edition of Groups reflects the author's unique combination of academic expertise and group consultant experience by including the latest research on group dynamics and the most current views on ways to make working in groups more effective. Napier and Gershenfeld present complex concepts in a way that makes them more understandable, recognizing that students are more familiar with the dynamics of individual behavior and building on that knowledge to teach group theory. Throughout the text students are presented with tools that help them apply concepts and theories. Case studies provide real-life context and Reader Activities (reflective exercises) and Individual Experiments—creation and observation of group situations—engage students in the learning process by asking them to apply what they learn to their own lives. At the end of every chapter, For Further Information sections list book and web resources to provide an expanded perspective of concepts discussed in the text.

Editorial Review Product Description Brian Hayes is one of the most accomplished essayists active today—a claim supported not only by his prolific and continuing high-quality output but also by such honors as the National Magazine Award for his commemorative Y2K essay titled “Clock of Ages,” published in the November/December 1999 issue of The Sciences magazine. (The also-rans that year included Tom Wolfe, Verlyn Klinkenborg, and Oliver Sacks.) Hayes’s work in this genre has also appeared in such anthologies as The Best American Magazine Writing, The Best American Science and Nature Writing, and The Norton Reader. Here he offers us a selection of his most memorable and accessible pieces—including “Clock of Ages”—embellishing them with an overall, scene-setting preface, reconfigured illustrations, and a refreshingly self-critical “Afterthoughts” section appended to each essay.

An excellent textbook
No want of better books on the subject I give this book two stars because it's a cheap Dover edition, and as such doesn't hurt the pocket book much. But trust me, there is no want of better books on the subject. Try the classics on Group Theory by Hall, Kurosh or Zassenhaus before you try this one. ... Read more |

Great Price for this Book
Good buy
this review is for struggling undergrads
Review nearly 40 years later
Good Reference, Poor Textbook In lieu of all that, this book is a bain to use in order to learn the principles of group theory. Cotton, in his typical fashion, assumes that the reader is well-versed in linear/matrix algebra (and has a very condescending comment for anyone who MIGHT have to read the matrix algebra appendix he has in the back of the text) and that the reader can visualize symmetry operations readily in their head. There are places in the text where he should go into more detail and provide further examples, but he does not. Lastly, anyone who knows anything about group theory knows that it is a pretty dry subject matter. Cotton doesn't enhance the excitement of learning group theory with his dry, humor-less approach to writing the text (not to mention that this3rd edition is already overdue for another overhauling being over a decade old!). In case you have insomnia while taking your group theory course, attempt to read a full chapter in one sitting, you'll be out cold by the second paragraph! My final verdict, if you are a graduate student in chemistry who already knows something about group theory and its application, but needs a text to jog your memory now and again, this book is worth your money, but if you have to learn the basics of group theory from this book, RUN! Run as fast as you can! Or if you can't do that, buy this book, but buy another book and learn from that one rather than this one. ... Read more |

First impression.
Not the very best choice.
the language of theoretical physics After those two chapters come perhaps the most important chapters in the book:the ones on group representation theory.There is a long chapter on theory, and then a great short one on applications of GR that's extremely helpful in understanding what you've just read.After that MH gets into Kronecker products and Clebsch-Gordon coefficients as well as other operations with GR, and has another neat chapter afterwards on physical applications.He speak about the symmetric group in great length, and then about continuous groups, another extremely important chapter.The rest of the book uses the core of what you've just learned to help you understand linear groups in Hilbert space, and applications to sub-atomic physics. Here's what you need to do to consume this book successfully: 1) Don't wait for MH to give you an example.Make them up as you go along!And make sure you fully understand each and every little statement he makes:there's no extravagant sentences here, all are vitally important and he will make use of every statement at least once to prove another point. 2) If you haven't had quantum mechanics yet, hold off on the last half of the book until you have!MH assumes this knowledge, but you can get away with your ignorance for the first part of the book, up until chapter six (and then you can skip around a little bit). 3) Know the fundamentals of group theory before you begin.It's true that MH doesn't assume this knowledge, but I assure it's vital for ease of reading.There are enough new concepts to absorb with out making your brain less permeable by not having group theory under your belt. Overall, this book is good for physicists who want to become more adept in the language of theoretical physics (especially quantum mechanics and quantum field theory).I recommend it; but I also recommend you keep at least three other texts on hand that have their own way of explaining the things MH tries to explain.It is a good idea to do that in any independent learning venture, anyway.
great book for beginners

17. Naive Lie Theory (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics) by John Stillwell | |

list price: US$54.95 -- used & new: US$44.37 (price subject to change: see help) Asin: 144192681X Average Customer Review: Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan | |
Editorial Review Product Description In this new textbook, acclaimed author John Stillwell presents a lucid introduction to Lie theory suitable for junior and senior level undergraduates. In order to achieve this, he focuses on the so-called "classical groups'' that capture the symmetries of real, complex, and quaternion spaces. These symmetry groups may be represented by matrices, which allows them to be studied by elementary methods from calculus and linear algebra. This naive approach to Lie theory is originally due to von Neumann, and it is now possible to streamline it by using standard results of undergraduate mathematics. To compensate for the limitations of the naive approach, end of chapter discussions introduce important results beyond those proved in the book, as part of an informal sketch of Lie theory and its history. John Stillwell is Professor of Mathematics at the University of San Francisco. He is the author of several highly regarded books published by Springer, including The Four Pillars of Geometry (2005), Elements of Number Theory (2003), Mathematics and Its History (Second Edition, 2002), Numbers and Geometry (1998) and Elements of Algebra (1994).
