Roots of a Compact Lie Group
by Kristopher Tapp
Publisher: arXiv 2009
Number of pages: 39
This expository article introduces the topic of roots in a compact Lie group. Compared to the many other treatments of this standard topic, I intended for mine to be relatively elementary, example-driven, and free of unnecessary abstractions. Some familiarity with matrix groups and with maximal tori is assumed.

The book covers the basic contemporary theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras. This classic graduate text focuses on the study of semisimple Lie algebras, developing the necessary theory along the way. Written in an informal style.

These notes are designed for a 1-semester third year or graduate course in mathematics, physics, or biology. We give both physical and medical examples of Lie groups. The only necessary background are advanced calculus and linear algebra.
