Self-study of Lie Algebras

  1. Jan 27, 2010 #1
    Could anyone recommend a good book on Lie Algebras for self-study? I need to deeply understand Dynkin diagrams and classification of algebras.

    Other question: does anybody know a book on problems of Lie Groups or Lie Algebras?

    Thank you.

    Check this out http://arxiv.org/abs/0711.3447

    Though, it's a paper on E6 and its subgroups, it also gives a very nice summary/ introduction on Lie groups and algebras and their classification.

    Thank you very much George and Kexue. I will buy / download recommended books and put myself onto Lie Algebras.
