  title={Lie Algebras in Particle Physics: From Isospin to Unified Theories},
  author={Howard Georgi},
We may not be able to make you love reading, but lie algebras in particle physics from isospin to unified theories frontiers in physics will lead you to love reading starting from now. Book is the window to open the new world. The world that you want is in the better stage and level. World will always guide you to even the prestige stage of the life. You know, this is some of how reading will give you the kindness. In this case, more books you read more knowledge you know, but it can mean also… 

Lectures: From quantum mechanics to the Standard Model

The goal of these lectures is to introduce readers with a basic knowledge of undergraduate physics (specifically non-relativistic quantum mechanics, special relativity, and electromagnetism) to the

From isospin generators to BRST quantization of higher spin massless fields

Motivated by construction of isospin generators in particle physics (built form the SU(2) algebra), we find an equivalence between the algebra of these generators and those of the Virasoro algebra.

Lie Groups and their applications to Particle Physics: A Tutorial for Undergraduate Physics Majors.

Symmetry lies at the heart of todays theoretical study of particle physics. Our manuscript is a tutorial introducing foundational mathematics for understanding physical symmetries. We start from

On the Poincaré Group at the Fifth Root of Unity

Considering the predictions from the standard model of particle physics coupled with experimental results from particle accelerators, we discuss a scenario in which from the infinite possibilities in

Symmetries in physics

The concept of symmetries in physics is briefly reviewed. In the first part of these lecture notes, some of the basic mathematical tools needed for the understanding of symmetries in nature are

Newton-Cartan gravity revisited

In this research Newton's old theory of gravity is rederived using an algebraic approach known as the gauging procedure. The resulting theory is Newton's theory in the mathematical language of

Isospin : An Approximate Symmetry on the Quark Level

Isospin is an approximate symmetry which treats the up and down quarks as different eigenstates of the same particle. The mathematical structure for describing the isospin of a system is identical to

Extending Symmetries of the Standard Model towards Grand Unification

In this master thesis the spacetime, global and gauge symmetries of the Standard Model are reviewed. These symmetries are used as a basis for finding possible extensions of this successful model,

The Algebra of Grand Unified Theories

The Standard Model is the best tested and most widely accepted theory of elementary particles we have today. It may seem complicated and arbitrary, but it has hidden patterns that are revealed by the

Inter-Particle Potentials in Non-Linear Quantum Field Theories

This research is concerned with the inter-particle potentials for few-particle bound state systems in a scalar model with a Higgs-like mediating field and QCD. The variational method, in a
