Unitary Symmetry and Elementary Particles discusses the role of symmetry in elementary particle physics. The book reviews the theory of abstract groups and group representations including Eigenstates, cosets, conjugate classes, unitary vector spaces, unitary representations, multiplets, and conservation laws. Group Theory and its Applications, Volume II covers the two broad areas of applications of group theory, namely, all atomic and molecular phenomena, as well as all aspects of nuclear structure and elementary particle theory. This volume contains five chapters and begins with the representation and tensor operators of the unitary groups.

Appendix A Group Theory This appendix is a survey of only those topics in group theory that are needed to understand the composition of symmetry transformations and its consequences for fundamental physics. It is intended to be self-contained and covers those topics that are needed to follow the main text. Although in the end this appendix became.   I read the first four chapters of this book to get up to speed on group theory and symmetry because I needed the knowledge to write a peer reviewed paper in crystallography (original research). Other than reading a short introduction on-line, my knowledge of group theory before reading this book could be boiled down to one sentence: "There is /5.

  This book is aimed at graduate students in physics who are studying group theory and its application to physics. It contains a short explanation of the fundamental knowledge and method, and the fundamental exercises for the method, as well as some important conclusions in group theory. The book . Abstract. The unitary symmetry of elementary particles covers such topics as properties of groups, symmetry, group representations, and particle multiplets, the symmetric group and identical particles, Lie groups and Lie algebras, multiplets, Young tableaux and unitary symmetry, Clebsch--Gordan coefficients, the eightfold way, charm, approximate SU(6) and SU(8), and the quark model. This well-organized volume develops the elementary ideas of both group theory and representation theory in a progressive and thorough fashion, leading students to a point at which they can proceed easily to more elaborate applications.

Onodera Preface to the Japanese Edition As the title shows, this book has been prepared as a textbook to introduce readers to the applications of group theory in several fields of physics. Group theory is, in a nutshell, the mathematics of symmetry. It has three main areas of application in modern physics.
