Lie Theory and Special Functions
by Willard Miller
Publisher: Academic Press 1968
Number of pages: 338
This monograph is the result of an attempt to understand the role played by special function theory in the formalism of mathematical physics. It demonstrates explicitly that special functions which arise in the study of mathematical models of physical phenomena are in many cases dictated by symmetry groups admitted by the models.

We consider integrable Hamiltonian systems in a general setting of invariant submanifolds which need not be compact. This is the case a global Kepler system, non-autonomous integrable Hamiltonian systems and systems with time-dependent parameters.

The reason for my choosing the partial differential equations as the subject for these lectures is my wish to inspire in my audience a love for Mathematics. I give a brief historical account of the application of Mathematics to natural phenomena.

This book treats the Atiyah-Singer index theorem using the heat equation, which gives a local formula for the index of any elliptic complex. Heat equation methods are also used to discuss Lefschetz fixed point formulas and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem.
