Video Lectures about Lie Groups

"... A Lie group is a smooth manifold obeying the group properties and that satisfies the additional condition that the group operations are differentiable. ..." ( Wolfram Site )

The (self-) study of Lie Group theory is hard. I found two aids that helped me going somewhat in the subject. A book called Naive Lie Theory by John Stillwell and a series of weblectures by Erik van den Ban of the University of Utrecht. On van den Ban's homepage under Lecture Notes you'll find a Lie Group's prerequisites pdf with explanations of manifolds, tangent maps etc. which appear frequently in texts about Lie Theory.

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.)
