Lectures on Lie Groups (University Mathematics , Vol 2) by Wu Yi Hsiang

By Wu Yi Hsiang

A concise and systematic creation to the idea of compact attached Lie teams and their representations, in addition to a whole presentation of the constitution and class concept. It makes use of a non-traditional strategy and association. there's a stability among, and a usual blend of, the algebraic and geometric facets of Lie concept, not just in technical proofs but additionally in conceptual viewpoints. for instance, the orbital geometry of adjoint motion is considered the geometric association of the totality of non-commutativity of a given compact attached Lie crew, whereas the maximal tori theorem of E. Cartan and the Weyl relief of the adjoint motion at the G to the Weyl crew motion on a selected maximal torus are awarded because the key effects that supply an figuring out of the orbital geometry.

For existence of a continuous linear extension of a function on a subset we have an analogue of Lemma I, 2,1. Theorem 2. ~ tJ(x i) . ~ tiXil/ l=n xn of X. 44 Chapter II. Normed Linear Spaces Proof. By Lemma I, 2, 1, f has a linear extension g defined on the linear set L of all linear combinations of points of X. By the hypothesis Ig(y)I~Mllyll if YEL; by the Hahn-Banach theorem, with Mllxll for p(x), g has an extension F with IIFII ~M. For a finite set X this yields Corollary 1.

Then tx+(1-t)YEC if and only if t>O. For discussions of the operation of lineal closure see Klee [5] and Nikodym. (11) If W is a wedge in Land W" is the polar set in L*, then (a) W"= {f:fEL* and f(x)~O for all x in W}. (b) W" is a w*-closed wedge in L*. (12) Tukey showed that two closed convex disjoint sets in a reflexive Banach space can be separated by a closed hyperplane. Dieudonne [5] showed that this property fails in P(OJ). Klee [2] shows how local compactness is needed in the separation theorem when no interior point is available.

4,2). (6) Theorem 6 is a simple consequence of the separation and support theorems. (7) If W has an interior point and f is a non-zero element of L # which is non-negative on W, then f(x»O at every interior point x of Wand fEL*. (8) The Hahn-Banach theorem follows directly from Theorem 6. [Let M=L xR, E={{x,fo(x)):XELo}. K={(x,r):r~p(x)}, W=K-E. Then the core of K is {(x, r): r > p(x)} so (0, 1) is a core point of K and of W. (0,0) is not a core point of W. Theorem 6 gives a non-trivial monotone F in M #.
