About the Author

Brian Hall is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Notre Dame, IN.


"The first edition of this book was very good; the second is even better, and more versatile. This text remains one of the most attractive sources available from which to learn elementary Lie group theory, and is highly recommended." (Mark Hunacek, The Mathematical Gazette, Vol. 101 (551), July, 2017)
