Lie algebras and Lie groups. 1964 lectures, given at Harvard University. 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 0742.17008

Lecture Notes in Mathematics. 1500. Berlin etc.: Springer-Verlag. vii, 168 p. (1992).
Vol. 1500 of this famous series is dedicated to Serre’s well-known Harvard lectures on Lie algebras and Lie groups originally published in 1965 (for a review see Zbl 0132.27803). This 2nd edition is unaltered. The editors of the series deserve high credit for making this text easily available again.
