Howard Georgi's book on Lie algebras in particle phy

  1. Jun 27, 2011 #1
    Howard Georgi wrote a book called

    "Lie Algebras In Particle Physics: from Isospin To Unified Theories (Frontiers in Physics)"

    Are there any other books like this one - that covers the same stuff - except that uses a more mathematically formal tone? I know representation theory and some the theory of Lie algebras already, but I still find it a bit frustrating how vague he is at times with the definitions etc.

    And maybe a book that explains understandbly what goes on with SO(8) and this triality business...
