Prof. Dimitar Grantcharov, Mathematics, was invited by the Library to choose an item to add to the Library's collection, purchased with the support of the Friends of the UT Arlington Library on the occasion of her Promotion to Associate Professor with Tenure.
Prof. Grantcharov chose Complex Semisimple Lie Algebras by Jean-Pierre Serre, translated from French by G.A. Jones, New York: Springer, 2001.
Prof. Grantcharov's remarks on this item:
"This is a book in my research field and is written by one of the most prominent mathematicians of our time. J.P. Serre is one of the youngest recipients of Fields Medal (the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in mathematics) and is considered to have the biggest influence in the field of Lie algebras."
