Relativity Lorentz Group Reading

  1. May 4, 2017 #1
    Hello! Can someone recommend me some good reading about Lorentz and Poincare groups. I would like something that starts from introductory notions but treats the matter both from math (proofs and all that) and physics point of view. Thank you

    A somewhat simpler exposure one can find in the book by Wu Ki Tung on Group Theory. Here, as with other books, you can skip the treatment of finite groups.
    Another book - in between at the level of sofistication - is the rare one by Fonda and Ghirardi, but this one lacks in proofs for the fundamental (albeit difficult) group theory results.
