Next is a careful treatment of the foundations of the theory of Lie groups, presented in a manner that since has served as a model to a number of subsequent authors. Chern, University of California A brilliant book: For many years and for many mathematicians, Sigurdur Helgason’s classic Differential Geometry, Lie Groups, and Symmetric Spaces has been—and continues to be—the standard source for this material.

Print Price 1 Label: It is important that the book has again become available for a general audience. Helgason begins with a concise, self-contained introduction to differential geometry.

### Differential Geometry, Lie Groups, and Symmetric Spaces

Helgason begins with a concise, self-contained introduction to differential geometry. The excellent exposition is supplemented by extensive collections of useful exercises at the end of each chapter. For many years and for many mathematicians, Sigurdur Helgason’s classic Differential Geometry, Lie Groups, and Symmetric Spaces has been–and continues to be–the standard source for this material. All of the problems have either solutions or substantial hints, found at the back of the book.

This book has been famous for many years and used by several generations of readers. All of the problems have either solutions or substantial hints, found at the back of the book.

For Lie groups, a significant amount of analysis either begins with or reduces to analysis on homogeneous spaces, frequently on symmetric spaces. One of the most important and excellent textbooks and a reference work about contemporary differential geometry ….

Symplectic Ggroups and Analytical Mechanics P. Helgason’s book will turn it into a desk book for many following generations. Helgason’s monograph is a beautifully done piece of work and should be extremely useful for several years to come, both in teaching and in research.

This sets the stage for the introduction and study of symmetric spaces, which form the central part of the book. In geometry, for instance, general theorems and properties will also hold for homogeneous spaces, and will usually be easier to understand and to prove in this setting. Graduate Studies in Mathematics Volume: The mathematical community has long been in need of a book on symmetric spaces. Spencer, Princeton University A brilliant book: For this edition, the author has made corrections and added helpful notes and useful references.

Helgason has admirably satisfied this need with his book, Differential Geometry and Symmetric Spaces. Bochner, Princeton University Helgason’s geoketry is a beautifully done piece of work and should be extremely useful for several years to come, both in teaching and in research.
