Linear Algebra Intro to Symmetry references?

  1. Oct 20, 2015 #1
    Hi folks,

    I know nothing about groups or symmetry. Could anyone recommend a good introduction that defines groups and explains their notation and operations? I am particularly interested in general, orthogonal, and unitary groups.

    Thanks in advance. Kevin

    I would recommend "Groups and Symmetry" by Armstrong.

    Being unemployed, I'd like to find a free e-book

    Amazon in the USA has used copies (apparently in good condition) for less than $15 including shipping. A new paperback is about twice that price. Books are always a worthy investment.
