Series: Dover Books on Physics. Divided into seven chapters and various later written appendixes, this work was originally thought as a comprehensive introduction to the unitary symmetry.

This book is NOT Lie groups 101. Topics include the different flavors of spin, harmonic oscillators, multiplets of a few SU. . Topics include the different flavors of spin, harmonic oscillators, multiplets of a few SU(n) groups, and tying everything back to Young diagrams. The title is a bit misleading- if this is the "pedestrian" approach, I would hate to see what the author thinks is the more exotic route.

Lie Groups for Pedestrians. This book is designed to familiarize physicists with those techniques. Chapters cover such topics as a simple example of isospin; the group SU3 and its application to elementary particles; the three-dimensional harmonic oscillator; algebras of operators which change the number.

According to the author of this concise, high-level study, physicists often shy away from group theory, perhaps because they are unsure which parts of the subject belong to the physicist and which belong to the mathematician. However, it is possible for physicists to understand and use many techniques which have a group theoretical basis without necessarily understanding all of group theory. This book is designed to familiarize physicists with those techniques. Specifically, the author aims to show how the well-known methods of angular momentum algebra can be extended to treat other Lie groups, with examples illustrating the application of the method.Chapters cover such topics as a simple example of isospin; the group SU3 and its application to elementary particles; the three-dimensional harmonic oscillator; algebras of operators which change the number of particles; permutations; bookkeeping and Young diagrams; and the groups SU4, SU6, and SU12, an introduction to groups of higher rank. Four appendices provide additional valuable data.
