Text:J.E. Humphreys, Introduction to Lie Algebras and Representation Theory, Graduate Texts in Mathematics, vol. 9, Springer, 1972

Prerequisites: Some familiarity with standard linear algebra and basic algebraic structures (groups, rings, fields) is expected from the students.

Course description: Lie algebras belong to the most important types of structures in mathematics. In this course they will be studied from the algebraic point of view. This course can serve as an introduction to a course on Lie groups or on finite simple groups of Lie type. Topics:
