Basic course of Calculus and Linear Algebra (in particular, the courses 01MA1, 01MAA2-4, 01LAP, 01LAA2 held at the FNSPE CTU in Prague).

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Definitions and examples of Lie algebras. 2. The relationship between Lie group and Lie algebra . 3. The definition of Lie algebra representations , adjoint representation. 4. Enveloping algebra, Casimir elements. 5. Structural theory, subalgebras and ideals of Lie algebras. 6. Direct and semi-direct product of Lie algebras. 7.Nilpotent, simple, and semi-simple Lie algebras. 8. Cartan decomposition, construction of Lie algebra from Cartan matrix. 9. Kac-Moody algebras . 10. Superalgebra. 11. Examples of using in mathematics and mathematical physics.
