This is often an available advent to a couple of the basic connections between differential geometry, Lie teams, and integrable Hamiltonian structures. The textual content demonstrates how the speculation of loop teams can be utilized to review harmonic maps. through focusing on the most rules and examples, the writer leads as much as issues of present study. The ebook is acceptable for college students who're starting to examine manifolds and Lie teams, and will be of curiosity either to mathematicians and to theoretical physicists in addition.
