Book DetailsCRM Proceedings & Lecture NotesVolume: 34; 2004; 227 ppMSC: Primary 22; 81
Papers in this volume are based on the Workshop on Symmetries in Physics held at the Centre de recherches mathématiques (University of Montreal) in memory of Robert T. Sharp. Contributed articles are on a variety of topics revolving around the theme of symmetry in physics.
The preface presents a biographical and scientific retrospect of the life and work of Robert Sharp. Other articles in the volume represent his diverse range of interests, including representation theoretic methods for Lie algebras, quantization techniques and foundational considerations, modular group invariants and applications to conformal models, various physical models and equations, geometric calculations with symmetries, and pedagogical methods for developing spatiotemporal intuition.
The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in group theoretic methods, symmetries, and mathematical physics.
Titles in this series are copublished with the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in applications of group theory in physics.
