Item description for Group Theory in Physics by Wu-Ki Tung...

An introductory text book for graduates and advanced undergraduates on group representation theory. It emphasizes group theory's role as the mathematical framework for describing symmetry properties of classical and quantum mechanical systems.

Familiarity with basic group concepts and techniques is invaluable in the education of a modern-day physicist. This book emphasizes general features and methods which demonstrate the power of the group-theoretical approach in exposing the systematics of physical systems with associated symmetry.

Particular attention is given to pedagogy. In developing the theory, clarity in presenting the main ideas and consequences is given the same priority as comprehensiveness and strict rigor. To preserve the integrity of the mathematics, enough technical information is included in the appendices to make the book almost self-contained.

A set of problems and solutions has been published in a separate booklet.

Reviews - What do customers think about Group Theory in Physics?

A great reference  Oct 20, 2007
I bought this as a supplement to a course I'm taking on the standard model and it's very well written, clear, and concise as a group theory source. However, I do not recommend this book as a sole reference. A second source like Georgi's book is needed for any text on group theory.
He can do better.  Jan 14, 2002
This is not a bad book. The contents are comprehensive. The theorems are well proved. Graphs are used appropriatly to clarify the concept. But it has several shortcomings. One is the line space is too small, too many words are clustered together. Another is sometimes the proofs are too short. Some explanation should be given on certain points because those points are not so obvious and should not be taken for granted. Frankly, I love group theory, but after reading this book for 20 pages, I felt very tired, both because of the bad format and hard thinking. Hamermesh's book will give you a more enjoyable reading.
Almost perfect!  Jun 16, 2000
This book gives an excellent introduction into group theory and provides a working knowledge for those who want to study field theory (for example). I especially like the complete treatment of representations of the classical groups and the Lorentz and Poincare groups.
