Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences.

Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences. Group Theory and Its Applications in Physics. Authors: Inui, Teturo, Tanabe, Yukito, Onodera, Yositaka. Group theory is, in a nutshell, the mathematics of symmetry. It has three main areas of application in modern physics. The first originates from early studies of crystal morphology and constitutes a framework for classical crystal physics.

Series: Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences (Book 78). Paperback: 397 pages. Let me take that back: closer to 90% of physics and math textbooks have major fatal flaws. ISBN-10: 9783540604457. It is just about perfect! It avoids all the major flaws, and succeeds brilliantly where others fail.

careful solution of the problem to find the effect on the pendulum by its reaction, which is known from experiment.

This textbook presents a careful introduction to group theory and its applications in atomic, molecular and solid-state physics. The reader is provided with the necessary background on the mathematical theory of groups and then shown how group theory is a powerful tool for solving physics problems. Worked examples and exercises with hints and answers encourage self-study, while the inclusion of some advanced subjects, such as the theory of induced representations and ray representations, Racah theory of atomic spectra, and Landau theory of second-order phase transitions, should interest professionals.

Although I am not very far into the book yet, I can say that based on earlier reviews, it hits a high standard of clear exposition and useful examples and exercises. I think it is better than the Tinkham book (which is also very good), because it is oriented toward quantum theory formalism and applications right from the start. When I get further along I hope to have a deeper impression to convey.

It's a very useful book for physics students.

I am so sick of physics and math textbooks, since 80% of them are just absolutely pedagogically TERRIBLE. (I won't name any names, but let me just say "standard electrodynamics graduate text"-- now do you know who I'm talking about? Anyway...)

Let me take that back: closer to 90% of physics and math textbooks have major fatal flaws.

Not so this book. It is just about perfect!

It avoids all the major flaws, and succeeds brilliantly where others fail.

First of all, many other physics/math textbooks-- even so-called "introductory" ones-- take too much for granted, and often leave the reader lost or needing to cross-reference another book in order to fully understand. Not so this book. You need little background knowledge other than standard undergrad math to understand this book. That is, the book is self-contained, and provides all necessary information to learn the topic at hand. (+1 Star.)

Second, many physics textbooks read like theoretical math textbooks--many mathematical derivations with little reference to physical systems. Not so this "math" book! The authors take every effort to give concrete and understandable physical examples to explain Group Theory-- and this from a so-called "math" book, too! This increases the level of comfort and understanding immensely. (+1 Star.)

Third, many other physics textbooks give page after page of mathematical derivations, but then no EXAMPLES as to how to use the conclusions of those derivations to solve real problems (cf. "lazy" below.) Not so this book!! The authors here present full and complete mathematical derivations, but then also give full and complete SOLVED examples! On top of this, they then provide homework exercises with useful hints as to how the problems can be solved. (+1 Star.)

Finally, other textbooks often seem lazy--- they skip major steps in derivations with words such as "clearly" and "obviously" and "derivation left to the reader." This makes learning extremely difficult. On top of this, the explanations that ARE presented are often obtuse and extremely difficult to understand. Not so this book! The authors actually take the time to EXPLAIN things-- and what's more, they explain them WELL!!! They explain them step by step. They explain them CLEARLY!!! Wow! What a concept! A textbook that actually explains things clearly and completely! (+2 Stars.)

So, in conclusion, if you have any need to learn Group Theory, this is the absolute best place to start.

(A bonus hint: If you happen to be writing a math or physics textbook, you might also want to take a look at this to see how it's done!! Please? Please?? Pretty please??!!....)

I fully agree with previous reviews. Careful, well written, not overly elementary (like many symmetry books for chemists) not wandering in theory for it's own sake, but always keeping focus on the use of it in atomic, molecular and solid state physics. Only basic SO(3), no Lie groups and algebras, but thats' another book, for a different audience. It is a great pity that the paperback is not available.

Wonderful! Excellent! Great! Best of the Best! I think this book have to be a model to one who would like to write a text book! Do you believe the Group Theory is hard to learn? Read this book!
