, ix, 110pp., dust-jacket chipped and torn along top edge, very good orange-brown cloth Mathematicians of our time, volume 1. Karl (or Karel) Löwner - the original spelling - was born near Prague and got his Ph.D. in mathematics from Prague University; he taught in Berlin from 1922-1928 and received a post in Prague, then escaped to the US in 1939. Supported by John von Neumann and Eugene Wigner, who cited his 1933 essay on matrix functions, he held a number of minor positions before landing at Stanford (1951-1968). ISBN 0262060418.

Inhaltsangabe: Charles Loewner, Professor of Mathematics at Stanford University from 1950 until his death in 1968, was a Visiting Professor at the University of California at Berkeley on five separate occasions. During his 1955 visit to Berkeley he gave a course on continuous groups, and his lectures were reproduced in the form of mimeographed notes. Loewner planned to write a detailed book on continuous groups based on these lecture notes, but the project was still in the formative stage at the time of his death. Since the notes themselves have been out of print for several years, Professor Harley Flanders, Department of Mathematics, Tel Aviv University, and Professor Murray Protter, Department of Mathematics, University of California, Berkeley, have taken this opportunity to revise and correct the original fourteen lectures and make them available in permanent form.
Loewner became interested in continuous groups—particularly with respect to possible applications in geometry and analysis—when he studied the three volume work on transformation groups by Sophus Lie. He managed to reconstruct a coherent development of the subject by synthesizing Lie's numerous illustrative examples, many of which appeared only as footnotes. The examples contained in this book are primarily geometric in character and reflect the unique way in which Loewner viewed each of the topics he treated.
This book is part of the series Mathematicians of Our Time, edited by Professor Gian-Carlo Rota, Department of Mathematics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Buchbeschreibung Springer-Verlag Gmbh Mrz 2015, 2015. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - This modern translation of Sophus Lie's and Friedrich Engel's 'Theorie der Transformationsgruppen I' will allow readers to discover the striking conceptual clarity and remarkably systematic organizational thought of the original German text. Volume I presents a comprehensive introduction to the theory and is mainly directed towards the generalization of ideas drawn from the study of examples. The major part of the present volume offers an extremely clear translation of the lucid original. The first four chapters provide not only a translation, but also a contemporary approach, which will help present day readers to familiarize themselves with the concepts at the heart of the subject. The editor's main objective was to encourage a renewed interest in the detailed classification of Lie algebras in dimensions 1, 2 and 3, and to offer access to Sophus Lie's monumental Galois theory of continuous transformation groups, established at the end of the 19th Century. Lie groups are widespread in mathematics, playing a role in representation theory, algebraic geometry, Galois theory, the theory of partial differential equations and also in physics, for example in general relativity. This volume is of interest to researchers in Lie theory and exterior differential systems and also to historians of mathematics. The prerequisites are a basic knowledge of differential calculus, ordinary differential equations and differential geometry. 643 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9783662462102
