## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey All,

I want to start learning about Lie Algebras and I was wondering if anyone can recommend any good textbooks. I am an engineer, so I don't really care for a pure maths 'prove this' 'prove that' approach.

Also - does anyone have any two cents on 'Manifolds, Tensor Analysis, And Applications, R. Abraham, Jerrold E. Marsden, T. Ratiu' ?

Regards,

Thrillhouse
