This textbook for advanced courses in group theory focuses on finite groups, with emphasis on the idea of group actions. Early chapters summarize presupposed facts, identify important themes, and establish the notation used throughout the book. Subsequent chapters explore the normal and arithmetical structures of groups as well as applications. Application of Group Theory to the Physics of Solids M. S. Dresselhaus † Basic Mathematical Background { Introduction † Representation Theory and Basic Theorems † Character of a Representation † Basis Functions † Group Theory and Quantum Mechanics † Application of Group Theory to Crystal Field Splittings.

A Course in Group Theory by J. F. Humphreys, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(13). This book is suitable for a graduate course in group theory, part of a graduate course in abstract algebra or for independent study. It can also be read by advanced undergraduates. The book assumes no specific background in group theory, but does assume some level of mathematical sophistication on the part of the reader.

The first 10 chapters of this book cover basic group theory (as much as expected in a graduate course). The last 10 chapters are devoted to advanced group theory. Here, one studies transfers, extenstion theory, representation- and character theory among many other things. It's simply a classic! This is one serious group theory book, intended for graduate students with strong algebra backgrounds who plan to read papers on group theory after this course. Each chapter comes with a freight car full of substantial exercises, ranging in difficulty from trivial to research level. If you're studying group theory anytime soon get a copy.

A Course in the Theory of Groups is a comprehensive introduction to the theory of groups - finite and infinite, commutative and non-commutative. Presupposing only a basic knowledge of modern algebra, it introduces the reader to the different branches of group theory and to its principal accomplishments.

There is a book titled "Group theory and Physics" by Sternberg that covers the basics, including crystal groups, Lie groups, representations.

I think it's a good introduction to the topic. To quote a review on Amazon (albeit the only one): "This book is an excellent introduction to the use of group theory in physics, especially in crystallography, special relativity and particle physics.

The goal of this book is to present several central topics in geometric group theory, primarily related to the large scale geometry of infinite groups and spaces on which such groups act, and to illustrate them with fundamental theorems such as Gromov s Theorem on groups of polynomial growth.

Topics covered includes: Geometry and Topology, Metric spaces, Differential geometry, Hyperbolic Space, Groups. A Course in Group Theory. The classification of the finite simple groups is one of the major intellectual achievements of this century, but it remains almost completely unknown outside of the mathematics community/5(13).
