Pal bCambridge University Pressc2019aCambridge axxii, 693p a An algebraic structure consists of a set of elements, with some rule of combining them, or some special property of selected subsets of the entire set. Many algebraic structures, such as vector space and group, come to everyday use of a modern physicist. Catering to the needs of graduate students and researchers in the field of mathematical physics and theoretical physics, this comprehensive and valuable text discusses the essential concepts of algebraic structures such as metric space, group, modular numbers, algebraic integers, field, vector space, Boolean algebra, measure space and Lebesgue integral. Important topics including finite and infinite dimensional vector spaces, finite groups and their representations, unitary groups and their representations and representations of the Lorentz group, homotopy and homology of topological spaces are covered extensively. Rich pedagogy includes various problems interspersed throughout the book for better understanding of concepts. aModuli theory aAlgebra, Abstract aMathematical physics aTopological spaces aAlgebras, Linear cBK c566464d566464 0010406512_020000000000000_P17P_COP_4708TEXT9909485aIITKbIITKd2023-03-20e112g824.55o512.02 P17p cop.4pA186089r2023-03-20tCopy 4v1195.00yTXT 0010406512_020000000000000_P17P_COP_2708TEXT9909486aIITKbIITKd2023-03-20e112g824.55o512.02 P17p cop.2pA186087r2023-03-20tCopy 2v1195.00yTXT 0010406512_020000000000000_P17P_COP_1708TEXT9909487aIITKbIITKd2023-03-20e112g824.55l2o512.02 P17p cop.1pA186086r2024-04-21s2024-04-20tCopy 1v1195.00yTXT 0010406512_020000000000000_P17P_COP_3708TEXT9909488aIITKbIITKd2023-03-20e112g824.55o512.02 P17p cop.3pA186088r2023-03-20tCopy 3v1195.00yTXT
