Lie theory by examples

  1. Oct 2, 2008 #1
    If you ever wanted to learn about Lie groups and Lie algebras but was frightened by the textbooks, there is great news. John Baez gives lectures this fall, http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/qg-fall2008/" [Broken].

    I can't find examples relating Lie theory to differential equations.

    Lie theory is a huge subject. As I understand Baez concentrates in his course on the classification theory of Lie groups and their so called standard representations, which are matrices for the classical Lie groups.
