Download Infinite-Dimensional Lie Algebras by Victor G. Kac PDF

By Victor G. Kac

This is often the 3rd, considerably revised variation of this crucial monograph. The booklet is worried with Kac-Moody algebras, a selected category of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras, and their representations. it really is in accordance with classes given over a couple of years at MIT and in Paris, and is adequately self-contained and special for use for graduate classes. every one bankruptcy starts off with a motivating dialogue and ends with a set of workouts, with tricks to the more difficult difficulties.
