Sophus Lie - Lie Groups

From the book Groups and Symmetries, From Finite Groups to Lie Groups By Yvette Kosmann-Schwarzbach ( and translated by Stephanie Frank Singer ).

Once  you understand the concept of a 'group' you can hardly imagine that there were days that you didn't understand groups or worse: that you were completely ignorant about them. That's basically how important groups are, they are as fundamental to mathematics as numbers or graphs. - Although Lie Groups aren't part of M208 or courses I planned for next year I am studying them. I am making progress but it's slow. I am no longer in complete darkness but there is a lot of mist.

Welcome to The Bridge

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
