This book takes the reader from the end of introductory Lie group theory to the threshold of infinite-dimensional group representations. Merging algebra and analysis throughout, the author uses Lie-theoretic methods to develop a beautiful theory having wide applications in mathematics and physics. The book initially shares insights that make use of actual matrices; it later relies on such structural features as properties of root systems.
