I don't know if this is the correct section for this thread. Anyway, I'm taking a graduate course in General Relavity using Straumann's textbook. I skimmed through the pages to see his derivation of the Schwarzschild metric and it assumes knowledge of Lie groups. I've never had an abstract algebra course, but my background in linear algebra is pretty strong. So, I was wondering what are the algebra prerequisites for Lie groups?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thank you. :)
