Author:Dave Rusin; The Mathematical Atlas
Description: A short article designed to provide an introduction to Lie groups, an important special branch of group theory. They have algebraic structure and yet are also subsets of space, and so have a geometry; moreover, portions of them look just like Euclidean space, making it possible to do analysis on them (e.g. solve differential equations). Thus Lie groups and other topological groups lie at the convergence of the different areas of pure mathematics. (They are quite useful in application of mathematics to the sciences as well.) History; applications and related fields and subfields; textbooks, reference works, and tutorials; software and tables; other web sites with this focus.
