Thin Groups and Superstrong Approximation
by Emmanuel Breuillard, Hee Oh (eds.)
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2014
Number of pages: 362
This is a collection of surveys and primarily expository articles focusing on recent developments concerning various quantitative aspects of 'thin groups'. This book provides a broad panorama of a very active field of mathematics at the boundary between geometry, dynamical systems, number theory, and combinatorics.

After introducing permutation notation and defining group, the author discusses the simpler properties of group that are independent of their modes of representation; composition-series of groups; isomorphism of a group with itself; etc.

The book presents in a unified manner the more fundamental aspects of finite groups and their applications, and at the same time preserves the advantage which arises when each branch of an extensive subject is written by a specialist in that branch.

A self-contained account of the elementary theory of groupoids and some of its uses in group theory and topology. Category theory appears as a secondary topic whenever it is relevant to the main issue, and its treatment is by no means systematic.

The following notes are the basis for a graduate course. They are oriented towards the application of group theory to particle physics, although some of it can be used for general quantum mechanics. They have no pretense of mathematical rigor.
